Subject Re: How does JMS correlation work in Java?
Date Mon, 11 Oct 2010 08:22:16 GMT

there's usually a listener (on app level) that receives all requests
and then dispatch them further in the app based on correlation id

The other approach would be to use selectors to consume from the "reply queue"
