Subject Re: alternatives to request response pattern
Date Thu, 19 May 2011 23:31:05 GMT

You can use a queue browse to do that. Basically, you send a message to the queue with the
information you need. Then the client will browse the queue looking for the desired information.
When you need to update that information just consume the message and publish a new one. 
You can also use message selectors in case you have many clients querying the same queue.

Hope that helps,
