I am working with a client who will be implementing a data link via a new public network carrier. The link will be a private Frame Relay connection with a firewall between the two companies. The carrier provides a CORBA compliant
client module that we believe is event driven. Our client's interface to this module can be written in Java or C++. The vendor provides sample frameworks for both.
I would like to see them implement a messaging infrastructure throughout the entire application system, and they are up for the idea. I'd like to get your thoughts on the issue of Java versus C++ for writing their code, and on MQSeries
versus JMS for the messaging. There will be a number of point to point handoffs between application programs, but some of the hand offs could occur through pub/sub.
There are several programs that may be appropriate for Java, but most of the system will probably be written in C. It runs in an HP-UX environment. The incoming messages will stream in 24x7 at a maximum rate of 7,000 messages about 2K long per day. There will also be a much lower volume of outbound messages, perhaps 500 per day, but probably even less than that.
