Persistent Delivery Mode :

  • The PERSISTENT mode instructs the JMS provider to take extra care to insure the message is not lost in transit due to a JMS provider failure.
  • In transit means between the publishing client and the JMS server because once the JMS server has successfully received the message the responsibility for successful delivery guarantee has been handed off to the JMS Server.
  • Applications sending messages with the PERSISTENT delivery mode are blocked until the EMS server successfully receives the sent message and writes it to stable storage (disk).
  • Once the message is received and written to stable storage the EMS server sends an EMS acknowledgement to the publishing application allowing it to resume sending.

  • The NON_PERSISTENT mode is the lowest-overhead delivery mode because it does not require that the message be logged to stable storage. A JMS provider failure can cause a NON_PERSISTENT message to be lost.
  • Applications sending messages with the NON_PERSISTENT delivery mode can block the sending operation, it is dependant on the EMS server’s authentication mode.
  • If EMS server authentication is enabled applications are blocked waiting for the EMS server acknowledgement that establishes if the
  • client is authorized.
  • If EMS server authentication is disabled applications that can write the message into the TCP buffer are immediately returned control after the TCP write occurs.
  • The EMS server does not send an EMS acknowledgement when authorization is disabled since the application is not expecting one for the sent message.
  • TIBCO Enterprise Message Service provides an additional delivery mode RELIABLE.

RELIABLE Delivery Mode:

  • The TIBCO defined RELIABLE delivery mode provides addition performance benefits above NON_PERSISTENT. The RELIABLE delivery mode provides no system or EMS level acknowledgement so publishing applications are free to send data without restriction.
  • Applications sending data with the TIBCO defined RELIABLE delivery mode never block on the send operation.
  • Once the message is delivered to the OS for network delivery on the publishing application’s machine the send operation is returned to the application.
  • The publishing application does not wait for a TCP acknowledgement or an EMS acknowledgement and they are actually never sent.
