Uniform distributed topics - configure general parameters

Before you begin

After you create a uniform distributed topic, you can modify and define general property values, such as selecting a destination key for sorting messages as they arrive on the members of the distributed topic.

To configure general values for the members of a uniform distributed topic:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the Administration Console, navigate to the uniform distributed topic resource that you want to configure:
  3. On the Configuration: General page:
    1. In Name, a name for the uniform distributed topic.

      Once you create a uniform distributed topic, you cannot rename it. Instead, you must delete it and create another one that uses the new name.

    2. In JNDI Name, enter the JNDI name used to look up the uniform distributed topic within the JNDI namespace. Applications use the JNDI Name to look up the distributed topic.

      If you do not specify a JNDI name for the distributed topic, it will not be available for JNDI lookup even after it has been targeted to a server resource. Therefore, you will only be able to access the distributed topic using the javax.jms.topicSession.createtopic() API or in an application-scoped context.

    3. In Forwarding Policy, specify Replicated to allow a member to replicate (forward) information to other members of the distributed topic. Specify Partitioned to prevent forwarding to other members of the distributed topic.
    4. Optionally, in Template, select a template to define configuration values.
    5. Optionally, in Destination Keys, specify keys for sorting messages.
    6. In Default Targeting Enabled, specify if this destination uses default targeting. Oracle recommends that destinations, regardless of their type, use Advanced Targeting to ensure that they are directly targeted to a JMS server or SAF agent.

    For more information about these fields, see Configuration Options.

  4. Save your changes:
  5. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
