Listener of a Queue


  1. Create a project message_queue_listener_project
  2. Then create a JavaScript service named my_listener_handler.js
  3. Replace the service code with the following content:


exports.onMessage = function(message) {
    console.log("Hello from My Listener! Message: " + message);

exports.onError = function(error) {
    console.error("Error from My Listener! Error: " + error);
  1. Then create a Message Listener named my_listener.listener
  2. Replace the file content with the following JSON code:
    "description":"My Listener"
  1. Then create another back-end service which will play the role of a trigger my_trigger.js
  2. Replace the trigger content with the following code:
var producer = require('messaging/v3/producer');
var message = "*** I am a message created at: " + new Date() + " ***";
console.log("Hello from My Trigger! Message: " + message);
  1. Publish the project
  2. Select the my_trigger.js file in the Workspace view to be able to trigger the invocation of this service via the Preview view
  3. In the Console view you should see the following lines:

    [2018-05-14T11:57:13.197Z] [INFO] Hello from My Listener! Message: I am a message created at: Mon May 14 2018 14:57:13 GMT+0300 (EEST)
