Administer reliable web services

To configure a web service application to use WS-ReliableMessaging, you attach a policy set containing a WS-ReliableMessaging policy type. This policy type offers a range of qualities of service: managed persistent, managed non-persistent, or unmanaged non-persistent.

WS-ReliableMessaging is an interoperability standard for the reliable transmission of messages between two endpoints. To administer WS-ReliableMessaging for an application, you take the following broad actions:

  1. Attach a reliable messaging policy set (either a default policy set or one that we have created) to an aspect of the application (that is, application level or web service level). Policy sets define the reliability level (quality of service) and other configuration options to apply to your reliable messaging application.

  2. Define the bindings for each attachment to a policy set that specifies a managed quality of service. That is, choose the service integration bus and messaging engine to use to maintain the state for the managed persistent and managed non-persistent qualities of service.

At any stage, we can set a property that configures endpoints to only support clients that use reliable messaging. This setting is reflected by WS-Policy if engaged.

If our WS-ReliableMessaging application runs inside the web container and uses a managed quality of service, we can also use WS-ReliableMessaging to provide transactional recoverable messaging.
