  • Messaging Clarification

    by Carlus Henry /

    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    At about 21:30 into the talk, Theo mentions a step-by-step breakdown of how messaging works. In it, he says that the potential for messages to be lost, is very high. My assumption is that in the setup that is being described, he is not using transactions. Is that the case? If there were transactions being used, wouldn't that guarantee messages to be delivered to the queue?

    Thanks in advance.
