I think my problem is pretty basic, but for some reason I can not find an answer.
I am trying to write a simple client listener program, to get messages off of a message queue. This message queue is set up on a remote machine. I have been trying to set up Hermes, to no avail. I have downloaded the sample program SimpleDetectorClient from JBoss's website. However, this code has not given me any help.
So basically, I need to write a program (I'm using Eclipse) to listen to this message queue running on a remote machine. Any help or a link to a useful tutorial would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Since you mentioned Hermes, I assume you're talking about JMS messages, in which case you probably want to work at a higher level than Remoting. JBoss has an implementation of JMS called JBossMessaging which will let you create connections, consume messages, etc. And, of course, it's open source.
A good place to get started is to go to http://labs.jboss.com/projects and look for the JBossMessaging project.
