Subject Re: Implement request response with JMS over Stomp
Date Tue, 11 Aug 2009 15:04:07 GMT


Thank you for the solution. =)

If I understood right, then each requesting service A (A1...An) should
maintain its own unique correlation id (permanent during the connection's
life). That way message broker could decide which requesting service An to
route message to if two or more requesting services (Ak, Am,...) are trying
to consume message from the /queue/responses at the same moment.
Is that correct understanding of your idea?

I realize that it's not very secure. Let's imagine that one of requesting
services (A) could go greedy and consume all messages from the queue (by
omitting selector). Using topic instead of queue would solve that issue. One
greedy service will not steal messages from the topic, though still all
services might observe the message which is destined for single one if they
omitted selector. 
Meanwhile this is still best solution I could imagine now.
