If we create a MQ or JMS queue connection - does it need synchronization for multiple threads to be able to send message to it?
MQEnvironment.hostname = hostname;
MQEnvironment.channel = channel;
MQEnvironment.port = portNumber;
qMgr = new MQQueueManager(qManager);
openOptions = MQC.MQOO_INPUT_AS_Q_DEF | MQC.MQOO_OUTPUT;
Queue = qMgr.accessQueue(outQueue,openOptions, null, null, null);
Can this 'Queue' handle be passed over to multiple threads to send over messages without synchronization?
If not, why?
Answers with proper justifications will be really appreciated.
For instance, if you browse the API documentation for the IBM MQ classes for Java you'll find:
An MQQueueManager object (and any queues or processes accessed through it) can be shared between multiple threads, but be aware that access to the WebSphere MQ queue manager itself is synchronized, so that only one thread can communicate with it at any one time.
Similarly for JMS in its API documentation:
A Session object is a single-threaded context for producing and consuming messages.
