Found mod_pubsub, but it didn't look terribly active (WIKI down). Anyone worked with that?
Also there is JEP-0060: Publish-Subscribe. I just glanced at it - looked like it manages the subscriptions via XML (non-SOAP) messages. I guess that would work too, but assume that is basically the WS-* sans the SOAP / cruft.
I need to catch up with what is already out there.
It would be great if there was a decent / simple spec. for this and there were either web server plugins, app servers, etc. for many platforms. For all I know, I have been drinking the JMS Kool-Aid & muttering things about WS-* (what I considered the somewhat available alternative) for too long and there is a viable solution to HTTP/POX XML Based EDA Pub Sub today.
Anybody have any experience using HTTP / POX XML (be it via HTTP Headers or something like JEP-0060) for EDA / Pub Sub?
