What's the better api to use? (<-- a loaded question!)
Is there a difference between using mqueue or using msg calls? I need to write an application on AIX where one process is asked to do some work and then a second one would receive a message from the first to try and pre-empt what the first process will ask for next...
So basically, process one is asked by the user to get info on a client from a client database... The information is retrieved and sent to the user. At the same time, this process will send a message to another process to ask it to get more in-depth information about the same client and fill up a temporary database with all this information. When the user then asks the first process to get the in-depth information, the data will already be available and packaged accordingly.
So which messaging scheme seems better adapted to my specific problem?
