    New message payload types

    Mark Little Master

      Back here Bill asked the question about richer message structures than we had at the time. Well we've introduced a few new message payload types and updated the programmer's guide accordingly.

      The types are:

      (i) BytesMessage - a structured byte stream.
      (ii) ObjectMessage - a serialized Java object.
      (iii) TextMessage - a String.
      (iv) MapMessage - a tuple space <attribute, value) pairs.
      (v) ControlMessage - reserved for internal ESB control messages.

      These are essentially just different views on to the underlying Message payload, but may make it easier to work with/conceptualize complex data structures within the Message. They can all be accessed through the Payload class.
