Hello guys,

I recently discovered that pushing and popping items to/from the Queue should only be done through Zed. Just for my knowledge, can someone please tell me what's the use of Client/Queue module? I am assuming the modules available in Client folder are supposed to be accessable by Glue, Zed and Yves. If Queue is supposed to be accessed by Zed only, why there is a Client module for it?

    pre-text: every business use-case is different and some do not allow you to follow certain rules/conventions/suggestions - but every rule-breaking comes normally with a trade-off / cost.

    By concept Glue and Yves should not contain business logic. Just mapping and displaying -> so really just serving data fast in the correct format. For Yves to serve it with html and for Glue to serve it restful in an api format of your choice.

    If you see Glue and Yves as “Presentation Layer” to read data fast and display it -> Why should the presentation layer access a queue in any case? (Normally I would say there should no use-case for this. but see my pre-text)

    Client is more or less a communication layer in the view of the layered architecture (
    Communication between services. So for example to be used to communicate between Back Office (Zed application layer) and the queue service.
    At the same time there is a CustomerClient to get customer data from a source. Both clients are accessible (code wise) from Zed, Yves & Glue, but you can not use the CustomerClient in Zed because it is Customer-session dependent. In Zed there is no customer-session ootb.

    So long story short: Client is a namespace which can be used by Yves, Glue & Zed (and Client itself) but not every client should be used by every application layer, even if accessible 🙂
