Routing Messages With Wild Cards
Apache ActiveMQ Artemis allows the routing of messages via wildcard addresses.
If a queue is created with an address of say
queue.news.# then it will
receive any messages sent to addresses that match this, for instance
you create a consumer on this queue, this allows a consumer to consume
messages which are sent to a hierarchy of addresses.
In JMS terminology this allows "topic hierarchies" to be created.
This functionality is enabled by default. To turn it off add the following to the
<wildcard-addresses> <enabled>false</enabled> </wildcard-addresses>
