Configuring Distributed Topic on Weblogic Server

A distributed topic is a set of physical JMS topic members. As such, a distributed topic can be used to create a TopicPublisher and TopicSubscriber. The fact that a distributed topic represents multiple physical topics is mostly transparent to the application.

Note: Durable subscribers (DurableTopicSubscriber) cannot be created for distributed topics. However, you can still create a durable subscription on distributed topic member and the other topic members will forward the messages to the topic member that has the durable subscription.

The topic members can be located anywhere but must all be served either by a single WebLogic Server or any number of servers in a cluster. When a message is sent to a distributed topic, it is sent to all of the topic members in the distributed topic set. This allows all subscribers to the distributed topic to receive messages published for the distributed topic.
