Implementing Messaging : Error and condition handling : Connection and communication failures

Connection and communication failures

The most common run-time error condition is a connection failure. The beginSession procedure , which creates the connection to the OpenEdge Adapter for SonicMQ and the JMS server, reports connection failures synchronously by calling:
RETURN ERROR <error-message>.
The error can result from a failure to connect either to the OpenEdge Adapter for SonicMQ or to the JMS server. If the connection to the JMS server fails, the format of the error message is:
A communication failure that occurs after a successful connection might be detected:
*Synchronously (for example, when the application is trying to publish a message)
*Asynchronously through the error handler
It might take several minutes for the timeout mechanism to trigger a communication failure event. To detect potential communication failures more quickly, use the setPingInterval procedure (a SonicMQ extension) to instruct the OpenEdge Adapter for SonicMQ to actively ping the SonicMQ Broker every n seconds.
