The outgoing-message-handler splits logical messages into packets for transmission on the network, and enqueues them on the packet-publisher.


The following table describes the elements you can define within the outgoing-message-handler element.

Element Required/Optional Description
<use-daemon> Required Specifies whether or not a daemon thread will be created to perform the outgoing message handling.

Legal values are:

Legal values are true or false.

<use-filters> Optional Contains the list of filter names to be used by this outgoing message handler.

Legal values are from 1 to 10.

Default value is 7.

The content override attribute xml-override can be optionally used to fully or partially override the contents of this element with XML document that is external to the base document.
