The JMS Event enables you to specify when and how frequently the process flow should be executed if any message is updated in a queue or topic of a JMS Server.

Prerequisites

Ensure that you have created JMS Provider activity.


Steps to create a JMS Event Activity

  1. Click Configure > EVENTS > JMS Event.
  2. Click CREATE JMS Event.
  3. On Create JMS Event screen, enter the name and description of the new JMS Event in the Name and Description textboxes respectively.



  4. In the JMS Provider field, select the JMS Provider activity.

  5. In the Connection Type field, select the Connection Type as either Topic or Queue.

    If you select Connection Type as Topic, you need to do the followings:

    • Add the jar, activemq-core-5.7.0, to the shared/ext folder in the PVC.
    • Restart the listener and runtime microservices by running the following command with required inputs.

      kubectl -n <namespace> rollout restart deploy <Name of the deployment>
  6. Select the Durable Subscriber checkbox if the JMS Subscriber is durable. If a client needs to receive all the messages published on a topic, including the ones published while the subscriber is inactive, it uses a Durable Subscriber. This is applicable only when the connection type is Topic.
  7. Enter the subscriber ID in the textbox Subscriber ID.
  8. Enter the name of queue or topic as configured in the JMS Server in the Queue Or Topic Name field.
  9. Select the type of message, which you want to fetch, from the Message Type drop-down list. You can select:
    1. Text
    2. Byte
    3. Both
  10. If you want to select a specific message from the JMS Server, enter the message selector in the Message Selector field.

    The message selector is used to specify the filter criterion to receive a message that the user is interested in. The messages can be filtered based on only header references and properties references of the message. The message selector uses SQL92 query syntax to define the filter criteria. SQL92 is widely used to query the entire standard databases i.e. Oracle, SQL Server. The only difference between the database query and the message selector query is that the message selector uses, only a part of the query which is after the where clause. 

    The following message selector selects messages with a message type of car and color of blue and weight greater than 2500 pounds: 

    JMSType = 'car' AND color = 'blue' AND weight > 2500 

    The following message selector selects message with the property Sport has value either as Basketball or Football. 
    Sport in ('Basketball','Football')
  11. Enter the username and password required to connect to JMS Server in the UserName and Password text boxes respectively.
    Then, re-enter the password in the Confirm Password text box.

  12. Select the JMS session behavior from the Session drop-down list. This drop-down list has the following options: 
      • Transactional: If you select the session behavior to be transactional, then your message will not be lost even if it was not successfully sent via the server or received at the client end. However, then you will be required to put your process flow in the JTA Begin and End block in Process Flow Designer. For this, it is mandatory to set the value of JMS Source property jtaEnlist (added in the Properties Panel of the Process Flow Designer) to true. By default, its value is false.
     
      • Non-Transactional: The default session behavior is non-transactional. In a non-transactional JMS session, your message will not be saved and therefore will not be available if in any case it has not been able to successfully sent via the server or received at the client end.
        If you select the respective JMS session to be transactional, you need to set the value of the following additional fields. Perform the following steps for the same. These fields are not available for a non-transactional JMS session.

        If you select Connection Type as Queue, and Session as Non-Transactional, you need to do the followings:

        • Add the jar, activemq-core-5.7.0, to the shared/ext folder in the PVC.
        • Restart the event microservice by running the following command with required inputs.

          kubectl -n <namespace> rollout restart deploy <Name of the deployment>
  13. Enter the date from which JMS event will start triggering; in the Event Start Date field. The date must be in mm/dd/yyyy format. Click Calendar icon and select the required date from the calendar.
  14. Enter the start time from the Time drop-down list.
  15. Enter the date on which JMS event will stop triggering, in the Event Expiry Date field. The date must be in mm/dd/yyyy format. Click the calendar icon and select the required date from the calendar.
  16. Enter the expiry time from the Time drop-down list.
  17. Enter the time interval, the JMS event checks the database Server in the Polling Frequency field. Enter the digit in the Frequency field and select the unit of time i.e. seconds, minutes or hours etc. from the Duration drop-down list.

    We recommended minimum Polling Frequency to be more than 60 seconds.

     

  18. Click Advanced Properties to expand the hierarchy. All items in Advance Properties are displayed.



  19. Type the email id in the Notification Receiver Email-ID(s) (comma separated) to receive error emails related to this JMS event.

  20. Select Trigger in Sequence check box to trigger the Event in sequential manner. If you do not select the Trigger in Sequence check box then the associated Event will trigger concurrently.

  21. If you want to enable misfire handling for your JMS event then, select the Run Once option from the Action on Misfire Event drop-down list. If you do not wish to enable misfire handling for your file event then, select the Ignore Misfire option.

    The Run Once option will run only one collective instance of all the misfires for a particular event. Whereas the Ignore Misfire option will not run a misfired event.

    The default value of Action on Misfire Event field is set to Run Once for all of the earlier events.
  22. Select the project of the activity from the drop-down list of Project.
  23. Click Save.
