Performance Features of this Release

WebLogic Server introduces the following performance enhancements:

One-Way Sends for Non-Persistent Messages

You may greatly improve the performance of typical non-persistent messaging by using one-way message sends. By enabling the "One-Way Send Mode" option on your connection factory, its associated producers can send messages without internally waiting for a response from the target destination's host JMS server. You can choose to allow queue senders and topic publishers to do one-way sends, or limit this capability to topic publishers only. You can also configure a one-way window size to determine when a two-way message is required to regulate producer before they can continue making additional one-way sends.

See Chapter 13, "Tuning WebLogic JMS".
