44. Service ID Must Be Unique

The bus tries twice to eliminate processing an event — once from the original ApplicationEvent and once from the queue. To do so, it checks the sending service ID against the current service ID. If multiple instances of a service have the same ID, events are not processed. When running on a local machine, each service is on a different port, and that port is part of the ID. Cloud Foundry supplies an index to differentiate. To ensure that the ID is unique outside Cloud Foundry, set spring.application.index to something unique for each instance of a service.
