I'm very interested in using james with active-mq (or any other message broker) .
My Plan is to:
-) write an SMTP handler which replaces the current org.apache.james.smtpserver.integration.SendMailHandler and puts the message into MQ
-) write a spool manager which listens on messages an processes them, if a message would be "moved" to a different processor, then it shall be put into a different MQ and/or distinguishable in a other way ... (don't not yet)
-) review and extend the current active-mq stuff
In the end I want to be able to use a bunch of james servers which are connected through a commen message broker.
what do you guys think about this?
