super queue service

The OpenWFEru SQS connector got some coverage from Jinesh in his Super Queue Service blog post.

Jinesh wants to go a bit further and be able to share messages/workitems between different workflow/bpm engine. Why not ?

Events, messages, workitems what’s the difference ? It’s just information fragments.

Well, for some deployments I’d favour a queue system like SQS and for others, I’d prefer something like Atom syndication. Then why not have Atom entries as SQS content ? I’m going too far, I’ll have to refine the idea.

Subscribing to a feed might be more flexible than polling a queue…

Anyway, enjoy Jinesh’ post.
