This week's book giveaway is in the Testing forum. We're giving away four copies of The Way of the Web Tester: A Beginner's Guide to Automating Tests and have Jonathan Rasmusson on-line! See this thread for details.
We have a JMS server which mainly used to communicate between two boxes.(Tibco) processes which run on both boxes basically read an input XML ,processes it and conevrts them to flat files.Per XML, there will be 30 flat files(Total size of flat files combine varies from 1MB to 10MB). The processes which run on secondary box need to transfer the files to primary server. There are two options i see-
1)SCP-Secure Copy which will copy 30 flat files by making SCP connection(executed through shell script).
2)Sending files as JMS Message.On primary, JMS receiver program will read those and merge the flat files with other flat files.
Which option do you think is "better" ? Will SCP a problem if secondary box makes say 500 SCP/hour? In second option, JMS server will have storage of the flat files at some temprary location?
