Subject Re: WS-RM client callback property
Date Mon, 17 Feb 2014 21:13:56 GMT
I guess the question is whether we want to duplicate the JMX 
functionality. My thought was to keep this callback really simple, but 
still supply the essential information (basically, that the message has 
made it through to the far end) to the client. I suppose it would be 
easy enough to add another method to supply information at the start of 
the sending process, too:

interface RMCallback {
     void messageAccepted(String seqId, long msgNum);
     void messageAcknowledged(String seqId, long msgNum);

This way they'd have all the information to identify the message, and if 
they want to take full control over the process they can use this 
information through the JMX interface. How does that sound to you?

I can still supply the simple counting implementation that just lets the 
client check whether all the messages have been acknowledged yet.
