Hi,
Can my fellow ranchers please throw some light on this JMS doubt:-In a pub-sub environment,
for a subscriber,what is the difference between CLIENT and AUTO ACKNOWLEDGE modes?
Also if i use the "CLIENT" mode,is it necessary to call the message.acknowledge() method? message-->TextMessage

Which one of the two is a safer mode to ensure proper delivery of messages.
Please note I am using a messageListener to listen to the messages.

thanks
cheers
vinnym.

This article will give you some insight on the jms transactional model and acknowledgment modes.
I think, the choice of an acknowledgment mode, totally depends on what you want to do. If you want to take onus of deciding when a message is deemed to be consumed, then you must go for client ack and if you are sure that you will handle the message, no matter what comes your way, then you should do an auto acknowledgment.

Disclaimer: No one took a chance on this question so i did
