Hi, JBoss Message 1.4 doesn't support wildcards in its configuration.
Dear respectable community,
I have a project in which JBoss Messaging 1.4 will be used as the messaging component. One of the requirements is to define different groups of queues for different parties. The purpose of the grouping concept is facilitate queues management by centralizing administration for each party under a group. Does JBoss Messaging 1.4 provides the capability of queues grouping?
I found that JBoss Messaging 2 provides a similar concept by using a file called queues.xml which contains centralized queues configuration and security using wildcards. Is there a similar thing in JBoss 1.4 release?
Thanks a lot for your time.
I'm not sure I really understand your question, but if you're asking whether JBM 1.x supports different sets of queues being deployed from different files, then the answer is yes.
In JBM 1.x all queues are just MBeans and can be declared in as many files as you like.
Thanks gentlemen for replying. Mr. timfox, let me clarify my question:
Suppose there is a party A which will use queues q1, q2 and q3. I want to define a group called, for example, party_A_queues in which I will have centralized management (configuration and security) for q1, q2 and q3 without the need to repeat the same configuration 3 times at the queue level. This concept is similar to users management concept in which we assign privileges to roles and roles to users rather than assigning privileges directly to users. I hope this was clear.
the answer to your question is no. the security is set on each individual queue mbean. Like you say tho JBM 2 does provide this functionality, any chance you can move to this?
The decision of moving to JBoss Messaging 2 is not mine. According to my knowledge, it's still in Beta release.
