I am having great difficulty in creating Durable Subscribers in UM v9.9
Via the UM Enterprise Manager, there is no way to create a Durable Topic. You can only create a ‘Topic’.
The only way I have found possible to create a durable subscriber is via Designer. When creating a new Trigger, when I select the Destination Name, there is the ability to Create New Destination. This allows the option of selecting a Durable Topic - it appears both the Trigger and the Topic must be ‘Durable’.
All looks good at that point in Designer.
However, if I populate the KEY field, the new Durable Topic is not visible in UM Enterprise Manager.
It is visible via the JNDI lookup. But I am unable to send messages to that queue.
If I don’t populate the KEY field, it is visible in both and appears to function ok. I can send messages to that queue.
My question is - what is best practice for creating Durable Subscribers / Topics? It doesn’t appear to be documented anywhere and I am surprised it is not possible via the UM Enterprise Manager. It is not even possible to see if a Topic is Durable (unless you put it in the name).
