If a core bridge consumes items from Q1 and puts them in Q2, and another consumer is also consuming from Q1, will that other consumer ever see a message? From the queue's perspective, is a core bridge "just another consumer" or is it more than that?
Yes, you got it right: from Q2 perspective, the bridge is just another consumer. A Bridge consumer run inside the HornetQ server while regular consumers are run outside but this is transparent to the queue.
