Interface Queue

  • All Superinterfaces:
    All Known Subinterfaces:

    public interface Queue
    extends Destination
    A Queue object encapsulates a provider-specific queue name. It is the way a client specifies the identity of a queue to JMS API methods. For those methods that use a Destination as a parameter, a Queue object used as an argument. For example, a queue can be used to create a MessageConsumer and a MessageProducer by calling:
    • Session.CreateConsumer(Destination destination)
    • Session.CreateProducer(Destination destination)

    The actual length of time messages are held by a queue and the consequences of resource overflow are not defined by the JMS API.
