Introduction

The Queue message is used to manage and work with queues.

Here is a short description of what every command is supposed to do:

  • Access:
    • This activity can only be done in a sessioned workflow and starts entering the QUEUE MODE.
    • It accesses a specific queue and returns the first PNR on it.
  • Bounce:
    • This activity can only be done in a sessioned workflow and you have to be in QUEUE MODE.
    • With this message you can randomly navigate through the accessed queue by jumping a certain number of PNRs forward / backward and it returns the content of this PNR.
  • Count:
    • Count the number of elements on the given queue or on ALL queues.
    • Do NOT use when you are in QUEUE MODE !
  • List:
    • List the elements on the given queue in short format.
    • Do NOT use when you are in QUEUE MODE !
  • Move:
    • Move a certain number of PNRs from one queue to another, starting at the beginning of this queue.
    • Do NOT use when you are in QUEUE MODE !
  • Place:
    • Place a PNR on a specified queue. This can be done with record locator and / or with the current PNR (sessioned only), depending on the GDS.
    • Do NOT use when you are in QUEUE MODE !
  • Remove:
    • Removes a specified or all PNRs from a specified queue. In some GDS, only the current PNR can be removed (sessioned only).
    • Do NOT use when you are in QUEUE MODE !
  • Clean:
    • Remove all PNRs that have past dates or no itineraries from the queue specified. In some GDS all PNRs of the queue can be deleted.
    • On some GDS (e.g. Worldspan) this action can also be used to remove PNR duplicates from queues.
    • Do NOT use when you are in QUEUE MODE !
  • EndTransact:
    • For use in QUEUE MODE only.
    • EndTransact this PNR and display next or current PNR on queue, which depends on the @TransactionType attribute.
  • Exit:
    • This activity can only be done in a sessioned workflow.
    • Exit the queue and ends QUEUE MODE.
    • The XX/1 session must be release after this transaction.
