Friend of mine asked me a question lately. He wanted to know if JMS is handling duplicates in a way that the receiving side doesn't have to worry about this. This made me think about communication in general. Do we have to choose between duplicates or loss of data? Is there any other choice?

Best regards, szeldon

Both of them can be disastrous to some applications. In some cases, you can not afford data loss. At the same time, you can not afford to have duplicate accepted requests.

This is usually depends on your application requirements.

You need to read the JMS documentation and study your requirements.
