Towards Designing Reliable Messaging Patterns



Reliable communication is nowadays pervasively supported by TCP, which is poorly adapted for message-based communications, because it offers a streaming channel with no mechanisms to encapsulate messages. Moreover, TCP does not tolerate connection crashes. Thus, whenever reliable message- based communication is needed, developers either use heavy-weight middleware, like Java Message Service (JMS), or develop their own custom error-prone solutions for recovering from crashes. In this paper, we introduce two TCP-based design patterns that address these limitations, and facilitate the development of light-weight and reliable message-based applications. Our design solutions are modular, in the sense that they build on top of each other.
