Have you tried out the example in remoting/chatroom?
excellent example (had a quick look/play with it now). That is the way I was thinking (to use a message topic, publish/subscribe etc. (just looked at the JMS Messaging in the docs as well)).
From what I can see this example does not use the normal polling mechanism (I have just browsed the code briefly), but uses some kind of callback mechanism (channelMessageCallback)? Or does it still use some kind of polling to contact the message queue ?
This is all Shane Bryzak's work ;-)
Great work Shane et. al.
I love Seam! Has made my life so much easier !
Had a quick look in the Seam code. Appears to be using polling. However I think it will work well (as long as one doesn't have massive number of people killing the server in terms of load).
