    messaging over slow link

      Hi,

      I'm doing a significant amount of messaging over slow links , and I was wondering if it is possible to compress the messages sent.

      thanks

          compress the message content yourself.

          Regards,

            I considered that option, but in my case the payload is very small, almost all of the message size is the overhead, so it wouldn't help.

            does jboss have a jms provider that compresses ?

              Are you saying that the messages are small but you are sending many of them? You could probably create some sort of compressed TCP/IP tunnel for tranmission and direct JMS traffic through it. I don't know how much % less bandwidth this would be.

              If JMS is still too much overhead, I suggest using a simple socket link. Have the server read from a simple socket, generate the JMS message itself and enqueue on itself. For sever -> client, you can create a MDB which reads from JMS and sends back data over this same link.
