Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-771) should not attempt to send a message over the connection.
Date Thu, 22 Jun 2006 20:03:51 GMT should not attempt to send a message over
the connection.

         Key: AMQ-771
     Project: ActiveMQ
        Type: Bug

  Components: Connector  
    Versions: 4.0.1, 4.0    
    Reporter: Kevin Yaussy

Especially when using "failover", there can be a problem with respect to TransportConnection::stop
attempting to send a "shutdown" message over the connection.  If another thread is sending
messages to the connection, and it gets stuck for some reason, such as a network freeze, the
target machine panics, or the target process freezes for some reason, the TransportConnection::dispatch
will eventually block, locking the MutextTransport object.  When the InactivityMonitor wakes
up and detects that the connection is dead, it will go through the process of stopping the
connection.  This goes back into TransportConnection, and calls stop, which attemtps to lock
the MutexTransport so it can send the "shutdown" command.  Now, both threads are stuck, potentially
for a long time, as a box panic will not cleanly close the tcp connection.

I'm not sure the rationale for wanting to send a shutdown command to the other side of the
connection, since the target has to handle the connection going down hard anyway.  Seems to
me, if you are intending on closing the connection, just close it - don't try to be nice to
the other side.  Especially in this code path, there is something wrong with the other side
