Subject Re: Scheduling messages with ActiveMQ 5.9.1 embedded in Tomcat 7 with Spring
Date Thu, 08 May 2014 03:45:41 GMT
Have you considered using Quartz, or another approach to scheduling?

I like to keep scheduling outside of the messaging layer since they are very
different responsibilities.  Especially with an embedded broker, any benefit
with using ActiveMQ's scheduler seems to be eliminated (that is, having a
scheduler running on a server separate from the application).

Think about the case of needing to perform maintenance on the scheduler
(e.g. purging or suspending scheduled jobs).  With ActiveMQ, that means the
ActiveMQ messaging functions may be impacted, even if only for a brief
period of time.

Just something to consider.
