Subject Recommended way to handle message priority with a single resource
Date Wed, 04 Mar 2009 03:05:37 GMT

Hello,

I read this FAQ:
http://activemq.apache.org/how-can-i-support-priority-queues.html

However, I do not like either of the solutions. First one seems to imply
that I have to have consumers dedicated to each priority. Second one implies
that I can only rearrange the order once as I put them through some
reordering Q of some sort. Please let me know if my interpretation is wrong.

Here's what I want to be able to do:
- Have X number of resources all handle high and low priority messages.
- Since JMS message priority is not implemented for ActiveMQ, I was thinking
if using Y queues, each queue to handle a single priority level.
- A consumer will go through each queue, in a specific order which implies
the priority level (highest priority will be looked at first).
- Until it finds a message, it will keep on checking the next queue which a
lower priority.

Currently I use DefaultMessageListenerContainer, but I believe that's tied
to one queue. Is there an easy way to do something like the above? Of
course, if I had lots of resources, I can just use a different farm for each
priority, but such is not the case.

Thank you very much,
Koichi
