[jira] Created: (AMQ-1100) BufferedTransportFilter or similar feature

JIRA jira@apache.org
BufferedTransportFilter or similar feature

                 Key: AMQ-1100
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/activemq/browse/AMQ-1100
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Transport
    Affects Versions: 4.1.0
            Reporter: Hernan Otero
            Priority: Minor

I'm considering using ActiveMQ for an app that would transfer a large number of messages over the http transport (across firewalls/internet).  I would want to  use async messages (i.e. useAsyncSend=true) to boost performance.

Would it make sense to introduce a BufferedTransportFilter to boost performance even further? (considering the fact that these messages would be traveling over the internet).  That is, the BufferedTransportFilter would wait a configurable amount of time before "batching together" all the messages it received so far (or after some configurable limit in terms of bytes and/or number of messages) and then pass this on to the next Transport.  Ideally, the Transport API would have to be extended to allow for a onewayBatch(List<Object> messageBatch) method (and the default implementation would just iterate over the list and rely on the existing oneway(Object) method.  HttpClientTransport could then be extended to allow for a single POST to send multiple messages over the internet.

Is this something that was considered?  Or that exists in some other form that I missed while going through the sources?

I'd be willing to contribute some time for implementing this if the maintainers think its a worthwhile feature to have.
