Abstract

This article discloses an autonomic algorithm for routing messages according to what processing a message requires and what destinations are available that can provide that processing within a message-queuing cluster. Processing is described in a standard format such as XML, and routing applications subscribe to the descriptions of processing carried out at remote destinations. Hence changes in processing on a remote machine causes the routing strategy to be altered dynamically.
