Subject Re: queue vs topic

of course it will depend on whether the destination will need to persist
the message...
but in terms of performance only, you'll probably find topics to be faster
especially as you add consumers to queues.

but the question you should be asking isn't which one is faster, but rather
what sort of messaging are you doing? In other words, are you intending
messages to have multiple consumers and each consumer competes for the
stream of messages (each consumer will get only one message from the
stream), or are you doing more of a "broadcast" to multiple independent
consumers that will not know about each other and each need the same stream
of messages (each consumer will get every message in the stream).
