I will be doing the database work soon and droping the hash tables. At
that point the messages go into the que and I am assuming you will have
more of a "PULL" agent that will pull the messages from the ZIS server.
Once the database objects are done the messages are not removed from the
server until the agent follows up with a SIF_Ack success code. At that
point the messages are removed from the db. Same now with the hashtables
just if the app server went down right now then the hashtables are lost.

I will be implementing the db soon.
