Subject Re: Programatically setting up a proxying broker

Hm, is anyone out there actually using ActiveMQ in this manner?

The reason I'm doing this is that I'm considering deploying message
brokers in a manner analogous to the way in which one would
typically deploy mail servers: Programs on a server communicate with an
MTA (such as Postfix or qmail) on the same machine, and that MTA acts
as a dumb relay that simply sends all messages to a centrally
administered MTA/MX. I'd deploy ActiveMQ instances on each server that
simply send all of their messages on to a central ActiveMQ instance (or
series of load-balanced instances).

I've had a look at Artemis, and it seems like the "core bridging"
configuration requires you to manually name the queues that you want

Given that Artemis seems to require you to specify queues to be
forwarded, and given that plain ActiveMQ doesn't seem to want to
forward messages no matter what I tell it, does this suggest that
people don't typically deploy brokers in this way?
