Subject Re: STOMP Vs RESTful to consume incoming messages
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2011 09:19:22 GMT
Hi Ravi,

the general recommendation is Stomp as it's more "messaging-oriented"
protocol than REST. With Stomp you can use all semantics important for
asynchronous messaging like transactions, various types of acknowledgment
modes and such. Also, the protocol is easy enough http-like so there are a
lot of clients for it already in many languages.
