Hello all,

i have a question about the cheapflow exemple of the chapter 4.
I had deployed my cheapflow sa on the hotdeploy directory.
My problem is when i run the Junit test. I have the response back to the customer only one time. I must each time restart the server (i also tried with jboss).
If i don't restart the serveur, i have the following message :
INFO [AggregateMessageLogger] state is not active so ignoring call

just for test, I tried to change manually the state but an exception occur...

I don't know if it's normal to restart each time de server?
Have you had problems with this example? It's very confusing for me...

Re: questions about chapter 4
Hi Bertrand,

The aggregator uses an unique identifier to aggregate the two messages. For this simple example we have used an ISBN number for the unique identifier. If you run the unit test the first time, the unique identifier is not yet known in the aggregator cache of unique identifiers, so the aggregation takes place. But the second time you run the unit test, the ISBN number is already used and the aggregation doesn't take place. So in real life cases it's important to use a real unique number and not a ISBN number that can be sent more than once.
Hope this makes things a bit clearer.

Best regards,

Re: questions about chapter 4
Is there a way to clear the aggregator cache? For the example I would still expect a response of some kind to the requester. Not just a timeout.
