Thanks for speedy reply!
Too bad about the "delay plugin" thought...:(
So, one last (hopefully) request.
What are some common patterns around delaying a message then?
One solution I've found on the forum is to put in an "expiry date" on the
message. This simple approach would just have the Producer inspecting the
message before processing, else requeue.
However, the one downfall of this approach results in a lot of needless
"chatter" between the Server and the Producer. Can I process? Can I process?
Can I process? Can I process?, ....
Any other ideas or suggestions?
