Conditional Pub/Sub

The example demonstrates publishing a weather forecast message with headers which can be used to create a conditional subscriber. The subscriber uses a selector to get weather forecast messages for the Dallas area when the expected temperature is higher than 60F degrees. The message is published into the demo channel.

Subscriber

Channel *channel = [backendless.messaging subscribe:@"demo"];
NSString *selector = @"city = 'Dallas' and temperature > 60";
[channel addMessageListenerString:selector response:^(NSString *message) {
    NSLog(@"Received a message: %@", message);
} error:^(Fault *fault) {
    NSLog(@"Error: %@", fault.message);
}];
let channel = Backendless.shared.messaging.subscribe(channelName: "demo")
let _ = channel.addStringMessageListener(selector: "city = 'Dallas' and temperature > 60", responseHandler: { message in
    print("Received a string message: \(message)")
}, errorHandler: { fault in
    print("Error: \(fault.message ?? "")")
})
