    Wild Card routing and security

    Andy Taylor Master

      Currently when a message is routed an ADDRESS_DOES_NOT_EXIST exception is thrown if security is enabled and the destination doesn't exist. With wild card routing this doesn't make sense, so the possible solutions are:

      1. remove the check.
      2. only make the check if wild card routing is disabled.
      3. make the check only if the address contains a wildcard.

      wdyt?

          Why doesn't this make sense? Can you elaborate?

            I'm referring to the following code:

            if (checkAllowable)
             {
             if (!destinations.contains(address))
             {
             throw new MessagingException(MessagingException.ADDRESS_DOES_NOT_EXIST,
             "Cannot route to address " + address);
             }
             }


            If we route to address a.b.* this obviously doesn't exist as an added address, how do we handle this.#

            btw 3 should be ' make the check only if the address doesn't contain a wildcard.'

              I think you're misunderstanding how it's supposed to work.

              You never route a message with a wildcard address, you *subscribe* with a wildcard address.

              I.e. you create a subscription to com.reuters.newsfeeds.*

              But messages always get routed to absolute addresses e.g. com.reuters.newsfeeds.uk.sport.

                Pfew!

                I was wondering how wildcard routing would affect paging and routing.
