A queue class is generated for a specific interface, usually an EventListener interface. For example, consider the atg.nucleus.logging.LogListener interface:

package atg.nucleus.logging;
import java.util.EventListener;
public interface LogListener extends EventListener {
  public void logEvent (LogEvent logEvent);

This is a simple EventListener interface where the relevant methods return void—a good candidate for queuing.

EventQueueGenerator Utility

To create the appropriate queuing class for this interface, Oracle ATG Web Commerce includes a utility class called atg.service.queue.EventQueueGenerator. The class is run using the java command, like this:

javan ATG.service.queue.EventQueueGenerator\

The first argument is the name of the interface for which you wish to generate a queuing class. The second and third arguments are the package and class name of the new queuing class.

The output of the command is written to stdout, so you can redirect the contents to a file like this:

javan ATG.service.queue.EventQueueGenerator\
  LogListenerQueue > LogListenerQueue.java

You should place the resulting .java file into the correct package of your source hierarchy. Like all of your other source files, you must compile this one and add it to source control as if you created this class yourself.

The resulting class looks fairly cryptic if you examine it yourself. But it has the following important characteristics:
