    Alternative to ObjectMessage

    Osian Hughes Newbie



      I am looking for an alternative to an ObjectMessage .


      The situation I have, is that a message is produced, containing a complex data structure (which at the moment is a set of POJO's), and then I have a series of processes which analyze the data, and possibly change it, before creating a message and passing onto the next process (or set of).

      Obviously, it is easy to do this with POJOs, but I'm wondering what other peoples experiences are, because I am sure that I am going to run into performance issues with serialization all the time.


      I have considered XML, but is there not a performance issue with this as well, having to parse the XML each time it needs to be dealt with?


      Any help or pointers are very much appreciated.

          You should be able to do your own parsing to any object through externalization. 



          For a messaging system, a message is just made of random bytes. Any message system I have worked with the ObjectMessage will be just a parser into the payload for the message.



          You could of course use the same with XML. But for the messaging system your message is just a payload of bytes, hence you can do anything you want.
