Pinned topic WS-Reliable Messaging vs WebSphere MQ

‏2008-02-11T18:19:28Z |
Does the WS-Reliable Messaging standard (mentioned in slide 29 on the 2/11 call) provide the same or similar kinds of features as WebSphere MQ ? All that great once & only once assured delivery?
Thanks.

    Hi Lisa. I do believe that the goal of WS-RM is to provide the kind of assured delivery that architects have come to depend on MQ for. From this note in the spec, though, I'm guessing that this could actually be implemented on top of MQ, if you wanted:

    This specification (WS-ReliableMessaging) describes a protocol that allows messages to be delivered reliably between distributed applications in the presence of software component, system, or network failures. The protocol is described in this specification in a transport-independent manner allowing it to be implemented using different network technologies. To support interoperable Web services, a SOAP binding is defined within this specification.

    From the wikipedia entry, it looks like WS-RM supports several types of delivery assurance: AtLeastOnce, AtMostOnce, ExactlyOnce and InOrder.

    Hope this helps...<hr />

    I just wanted to augment Joshua's post by including a link to more information about WSRM and its implementation supported by the WebSphere Web Services Feature Pack.

    Another good article to consider is Using Message-oriented Middleware for Reliable Web Services Messaging that covers most options that you may want to consider.
