Send a message on the message channel. The message is sent asynchronously. The method does not wait for a response before returning. It usually completes quickly because it only waits for local TCP implementation to accept the bytes into its network data buffer. However, this message could block briefly for longer messages, and/or if the network data buffer is nearly full. It could even block indefinitely if the remote site is slow to read.

void SendMessage(

Type: array< BerkeleyDB..::.DatabaseEntry >[]()[]
An array of DatabaseEntry objects. Any flags for the DatabaseEntry objects are ignored.


To block while waiting for a response from a remote site, use SendRequest(array<DatabaseEntry>[]()[], UInt32) instead of this method.

The sent message is received and handled at remote sites using a message dispatch callback, which is configured using RepMessageDispatch. Note that this method may be used within the the message dispatch callback on the remote site to send a reply or acknowledgement for messages that it receives and is handling.

This method may be used on channels opened to any destination. See RepMgrChannel(Int32) for a list of potential destinations.
