Disconnecting a Broker Client
Reconnecting a Broker Client
The webMethods Broker API allows you to disconnect a Broker client from a Broker without actually destroying the Broker client. This is only useful if your Broker client's life cycle is explicit-destroy because the client state for the Broker client and all queued events is preserved by the Broker. Any events received by the Broker for your Broker client while it was disconnected will remain in the Broker client's event queue. When your Broker client reconnects to the Broker, specifying the same client ID, it can continue retrieving events from the event queue. Disconnecting and reconnecting can be particularly useful for applications that want to do batch-style processing at scheduled intervals.
