Explain the difference between a Topic
and a Destination ?

What I understand:

  • A subscriber subscribes to a topic and receives message from the topic.
  • Several connections are possible on a topic.
  • A destination is a specific consumer.
  • A destination is part of only one topic.

Hi Christophe,
Destinations can be of two types,Topic/Queue.

Queue is used for point to point messages,whereas Topic is used for Publish/Subscribe Messages.

Queue has only one consumer, whereas a topic can have many subscribers as consumers.
