I had a good look through the JEP-0060 PubSub mechanism and had a few
questions about the semantics of a meta-node. Section 9 of the document
seems to only discuss a meta node as a system node used for internal
Is there any notion of a hierarchy of nodes using the meta node concept?
For example, suppose that I have 4 different groups of colleagues with
which I communicate and share presence via IM on a regular basis. It
would be easy enough to create a node for each group and then add each
of the group members as subscribers to the appropriate node. I would
then be able to alter my published presence to different states for each
Would it be possible to create a meta-node that "owns" each of the 4
group nodes I created? If so, 2 questions:
What would be the implication of publishing an item to the meta-node?
Would the children nodes forward it to their individual list of
If an item were published to a child node, would that imply that the
node is published to the direct subscribers of the meta-node?
Thanks for any feedback..
