Solace Message Onboarding Example
The purpose of this tutorial is to explain the process associated with on boarding Solace messaging application team into Solace middleware service infrastructure. For any company to start using Solace Message Oriented Middleware first teams needs to prepare document that is required to gather details on application flow and related messaging requirement (across various environment ex: Development/UAT/Production requirement). Platform team uses the document for analyzing and setting up application flow into Solace along with enabling application to monitoring/management tools. Solace service offering is a shared infrastructure service and onboarding document helps to gather details to gauge capacity/feature details expected from application.
Object creation process:
Objects in Solace can be classified as below:
You will have to include below information as an example below:
|Required Queue names and if JNDI are required|
|Required topic names and if JNDI are required|
|User details: don’t add password details and email to us securely
|ACL details for above queues/topic – which user can publish and which user can subscribe.
|Does all above new queue/user/ACL/Topic need to be set-up on BCP or it needs a different naming being used|
|Replication requirement – if the VPN is enabled for replication then which queue and topic message need to be replicated to BCP and if they need to be synchronous/asynchronous|
|Error handling– if application can handle error condition and does not drop messages
|Reconnect/Retry details – if applications have been coded for reconnect/retry and if they are validated in lower environment.
|Is this flow migrating to Production validated in Development and UAT/QA environment.|
|Total # of connections being added to the appliance|
|Monitoring threshold on queue/topics
(alerts will go to production support team)
Once all these information filled in you could forward to Solace admin team to on-board requested VPN. Usually when VPN gets created you get below information email from Solace team:
JavaHonk_VPN VPN Created successfully in Development. Details below, please do the rest of the object creation using whatever company provide to create your own queue, topic or durable through web interface:
|JMS-Persistent Connection Factory(Window size 1)||JAVAHONK_VPN_CF|
|JMS-NonPersistent Connection Factory(Window size 255)||JAVAHONK_VPN_NP_CF|
|JMS-Direct Connection Factory(direct-no Ack back)||JAVAHONK_VPN_DIRECT_CF|
Once you receive all these information you could start creating your own queue, topic or durable and start you testing.
