Subject Re: ActiveMQ 5 Multi-Datacenter Camel Routes
Date Sun, 22 Sep 2019 05:39:02 GMT
William,

If I understand you correctly, you're using Camel to clone the message so
you get one per data center, and then using Camel to move the message from
the data center at which it was produced to the other one. And you're doing
this so that you can have all messages reach consumers in both data
centers, though I'm a little confused about why you're routing messages
sent to topics (with pub/sub semantics, supporting multiple consumers) to a
single local queue in each data center (which would allow only one consumer
per data center to process the message). Did I get that right?

If so, it does seem like a network of brokers would handle this natively
without all the Camel routes. You'd ensure that messages and subscriptions
for the topic in question is forwarded across the network bridge, and all
consumers in either data center would get delivered a copy of the message.
What is it that you're accomplishing with the Camel routes that would not
be accomplished with this setup?
