    WAN

      Hi,

      Has anyone used JBoss Messaging across LAN, WAN or internet?

      Thanks.

          If you are referring to running a cluster of jboss messaging servers across LAN, WAN or internet, then the answer is that 1.0 doesn't support clustering, it is a single server release.

          Clustering across a LAN is due in 1.2, across WAN / internet in 1.4.

            I was refering to server to server communication without clustering them. Apologize for not being detailed.

            Thanks.

              I'm not sure what you mean by "server to server communication without clustering", can you explain?

                One JMS Server to another JMS Server across LAN.

                  I don't understand.

                  What other reason than clustering would one JMS server contact another server?

                  Can you explain your use case in more detail please.

                    We will have JMS Clients in different geographical location across WAN who would be connecting to their local JMS Servers. These JMS Servers will have to communicate (one server becoming client to another server). The Servers will not be on the same cluster.

                      Still don't get it.

                      How can one jms server "act" as a client to another server.

                      This is certainly not part of the jms spec.

                        Perhaps you mean you have jms clients that communicate with a local server, then another jms client on the same node as the local server talks with another JMS server across a WAN.

                          Ok timefox, remember JINI? A user (call him user A), would ask server A for a .jar file. Server A would look to see if he had it. If not, server A would ask Servers B, C, D ... Z for the .jar file. The server who had that .jar file would send it to server A. Server A would cache it, and send a copy to user A.

                          Now, lets see how we could do that with JMS! user A asks for all subscribe-able topics. Server A asks servers A through Z for thier topics and presents a list to user A. User A subscribes to topic Q on server Q. So, server A subscribes to topic Q on server Q and when a message is published to topic Q, the message is sent from the publishing user, to server Q, to server A, to user A.

                          This is what we're trying to do, which appears a chore, especially when you add in PKI requirements.
