To Message Queue or Not

I have been thinking recently in my day job about how to interface with machinery in a production environment.

Basically I seem to have two obvious options:

  • Use scheduled web services to write into my SQL table. NAV can then read transactions written into this table, and process them accordingly.
  • Have the scheduled web services write into a message queue. NAV can then read messages in the queue and action them appropriately.

Next step: What are the pros and cons of each method... time to dig a bit deeper into the realms of Message Queues!
