Subject Re: Request/Response with JMS
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2007 21:07:37 GMT

Ok, I have another question...hopefully not as dumb as the first one.

If the client creates the temporary queue how does the server know what
queue to create a MessageConsumer on? Or does this pattern assume that the
server knows about all of its clients at startup? Eventually the server
needs to consume messages off of the Queue but if a client comes on line and
creates itself a temporary queue the server has no way to know it needs to
start consuming messages off of this queue. 

I will have 0 to many clients that will come on/off line at will and each
time they come online they need to request data models from my server

I have done this in the past by using XMPP (Smack as the client libraries
and Wildfire as the jabber server...multi-user chatroom=pub/sub, direct
chat=point-to-point), but starting a new project and want to use something a
little more standard for this.
