The first (t0m's code, even if released by me) allows you to avoid writing essentially empty model classes (and to apply roles via configuration file). The second is the one that actually deals with messaging. As the name implies it's using STOMP, but there's actually rather little in the interface that depends on it. It works like this:

It's 'normal' not to create Catalyst specific models, but to create
your model outside of Catalyst (so you can use it in things like cron
jobs for example) in which case you just use a thin adaptor class. See

If you do it that way you don't need to publish a cpan module at all.
