Hello Ranchers, I am creating a social media web app where I need to handle user notifications, the way twitter/fb do it. E.g friend-requests, follower-request, new comment on post etc kind of notification.
I googled a lot about this and came to know that AJAX calls were the past for such features because AJAX add-on the overhead of http header. The Websockets are the resque for such needs where a publisher-subscriber architecture is followed.
As of now I am developing the web-services for my web application. So I have two questions here:
1. Am I expecting the rights tools for this need? Is a MQ correct choice for these type of business need?
2. If above answer is yes, then which is the good option to go with - Apache Kafka vs RabbitMQ?
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
