[R-pkgs] ANNOUNCE -- Rjms package, message publishing using rJava and ActiveMQ
EIP(Enterprise Integration Patterns), ESB( Enterprise service bus) are
commonly used terms utilized with Message oriented middleware.
Apache ActiveMQ implements message queues and message topics. The Rjms
package brings the capabilities of messaging to R.
The description states:
This package uses rJava to publish messages to an ActiveMQ queue or topic,
implementing Enterprise Integration Patterns.
This is the first version of the project. The usage is pretty simple: you
create a logger, send messages to a queue/topic using the logger and destroy
One interesting use case is in monitoring various iteration results while
the code executes.Using Rjms and ActiveMQ, a user can log various values and
update a chart or a table on a realtime basis. In case your iterations are
heading in the wrong direction, you can interrupt the code execution.
It feels good to bring the two open source projects together.
