Subject Re: Questions about seda's BlockingQueueFactory
Date Mon, 24 Oct 2016 13:47:49 GMT
I've tried out a custom implementation before where I ignored the capacity
value (with a LinkedTransferQueue), and I've done it the other way around
where I needed to use a default capacity value (which was configurable as a
property in the factory class). Alas, that seems to be a general problem of
unbounded queues, though: the ability to run out of memory by accident.
