stompserver version 0.9.8 has been released!
* <by Patrick Hurley, Lionel Bouton> * <http://stompserver.rubyforge.org/>
Stomp messaging server with file/dbm/memory/activerecord based FIFO queues, queue monitoring, and basic authentication.
## 0.9.8 / 16 Aug 2007
* Several storage backends instead of Madeleine (allow tradeoffs between robustness with ActiveRecord and speed with memory with intermediary solutions based on file or dbm storages). * Better load distribution between clients acknowledging messages after processing them. * Monitoring support through a dedicated queue.
As I'm currently working on a project where I need distributed processing, I extended Stompserver to fit my needs. This release is a partial cleanup and enhancement of a development branch by snacktime.
There's still some cleanup to do and the dbm backend should be considered alpha-quality at best. But it worksforme(tm) and has been distributing tens of thousands of message since its last restart without a hitch (with the memory backend).
If you want performance and can afford message loss, use the memory backend. If you want transactional message processing (messages are stored in database until a client can process them and reloaded when the server restarts), you can use the activerecord backend (configuration details with activerecord migration in the documentation).
Happy message processing,
PS: I can provide a Gentoo ebuild which installs an init.d script and a default conf file on request (it's pending more code cleanups before submission to the distribution).
