Uniform distributed queues - configure general parameters

Before you begin

After you create a uniform distributed queue, 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 queue.

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

  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 queue resource that you want to configure:
  3. On the Configuration: General page:
    1. In JNDI Name, enter the JNDI name used to look up the distributed queue within the JNDI namespace.

      Note: A distributed queue that does not have a JNDI Name can be referenced by passing the Name of the distributed topic to javax.jms.QueueSession.createQueue().

    2. In Load Balancing Policy, specify a policy (Round Robin or Random) for how messages are distributed to the members of this distributed queue.
    3. In Forward Delay, specify the amount of time, in seconds, that a queue member with messages, but with no consumers, will wait before forwarding its messages to other queue members that do have consumers.
    4. In Destination Keys, select a pre-configured destination sort key for sorting the messages that arrive on the distributed queue by moving a destination key from the Available column into the Chosen column.

    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).
