Subject network of brokers, message owned by a single broker?
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 18:39:05 GMT


I want to build a 'highly available' system and am now wandering why a
message is owned by a single broker in a "Store and Forward Network of
Brokers", as when a broker dies the messages it owns will be lost (until
broker restart when using persistence)? This seems a strange choice, why
have ownership of a message anyway? Alternatively brokers could forward
messages to other interested brokers in the network in parallel without any
broker owning the message. This way messages are never lost when a single
broker dies, and messages are delivered more quickly.

Can anyone shed some light on why a message is owned by a single broker at
any point in time?

Thank you for your time,
Bas Terwijn
