I believe it is a good idea.

It might be a great idea but I cannot judge that based on the information you provide. I donít know what the Perl scripts are doing and why they communicate. I would just like to say that not all synchronous communication can be changed to asynchronous.

In general asynchronous messaging allows for more parallelism because of the non-blocking nature but it also introduces issues like what happens if a message cannot be delivered? Or maybe the receiver needs to return some transaction id to the sender? etc.

I have seen home grown messaging middleware developed at a time when messaging products were not available. Nowadays I would take an existing product rather than reinventing wheels. Dedicated Message Oriented Middleware normally takes care of much of the complexity.

If Oracle AQ is available at no extra cost why not give it a try? I read up on Oracle AQ, and it is implemented in database tables (your option 3).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
