Subject Re: Programatically setting up a proxying broker
Date Mon, 31 Jul 2017 09:23:04 GMT
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
forwarded:

  https://activemq.apache.org/artemis/docs/2.1.0/core-bridges.html

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?
