Subject [jira] Commented: (UIMA-1109) Need ability to quiesce an instance of a service
Date Wed, 18 Mar 2009 16:54:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/UIMA-1109?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12683075#action_12683075

Jerry Cwiklik commented on UIMA-1109:

Currently there is no general mechanism to stop a specific instance of a remote service from
the client unless it *IS* the only service on a queue. Services share a queue and which instance
picks up a message is not known. Only Cas Multipliers create a special dedicated queue where
the client sends Free CAS requests. I thing the Terminate command would apply to all service
types: aggregate, primitive, Cas Multiplier or not.

Perhaps we need to enhance uima AS service to support a listener on a Topic, where we can
send admin type commands to services. With that we can broadcast commands like Terminate to
all services or a specific service. The latter would require a selector that would filter
messages. Each service may generate a UUID and use it to filter messages destined for it.
This would require that the service adds this ID to every reply going to the client. And the
client to internally associate this UUID with a specific service instance. If the client wants
to stop all services, it would send a message to the topic without providing a UUID. A service
may use a selector like this:

"serviceid IS NULL OR serviceid=<uuid>", where <uuid> is the actual UUID of the

The first part of the expression (serviceid property not in the message) supports broadcasting
commands to ALL services. The second part, enables to send a message to a specific service.

without losing any work, i.e. ask an instance to stop processing messages and shutdown when
it finishes its current work.
