Clustering is not currently available, but will be out in 1.2
Is there a planned release date for 1.2?
Nothing official as yet. All I can really say is "sometime this year".
I am suprised that this is related to clustering.
What i would like to see (and expected) is the following:
Always write and read from a local queue and the distributed channel forwards the message transparently to the queye on the target node (or cluster). So the messages can be read locally insted of using remote JNDI references with the chance of network failure which you want to prevent using messaging software. Or am i completely confused?
A distributed destination is a queue or topic that is distributed across the cluster, so you can send /receive messages to/from the destination while attached to any node in the cluster. This is the core ingredient of clustering. It's a clustered destination.
What you're thinking of sounds like store and forward (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Store_and_forward) which we'll be doing some time after 1.2
Yes i was thinking about store and forward. I thought that was what a distibuted channel was about. A distributed destination is of course a clustered destination as you point out.
Thanks for the info.
