This is about the Core Bridge.
There are 2 bridges on HornetQ. One JMS Bridge (which has the same semantics as JBoss Messaging.. it's the same code actually.. just a newer version).
And a core bridge that will only use the core api, which is meant for Hornetq <-> HornetQ communication.
The text about the pull queue versus push queue is about the core queue only. There's a JIRA with a feature request to implement it in a near future.
Ah great! Thanks Clebert - looking forward to see that JIRA implemented!! I will stick with the JMS Bridge until then.
