Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-2336) Redeliveried messages stops consumers from going on consuming the rest of messages in the queue

Redeliveried messages stops consumers from going on consuming the rest of messages in the queue

                 Key: AMQ-2336
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Broker
    Affects Versions: 5.2.0, 5.3.0
         Environment: Windows XP, Java  1.5.0_11
Spring 2.5.6 DefaultMessageListenerContainer
            Reporter: Diego Rodriguez

Here are the steps to reproduce de problem:

   - redeliveryPolicy configured in ActiveMQConnectionFactory as initialRedeliveryDelay 10000,
maximumRedeliveries 6, useExponentialBackOff true, backOffMultiplier 3. With these settings,
messages, in case of error, stays in the queue several minutes.
   - DefaultMessageListenerContainer with concurrentConsumers, maxConcurrentConsumers set
to 1, sessionTransacted=true, and cacheLevel CACHE_CONSUMER
   - We introduce a "bad" message in a queue (configured to cause a RuntimeException in the
MDP associated with the queue). The message waits in the queue to be redelivered again (seen
in jconsole)
   - We introduce a "good" message in a queue. The MDP associated with the queue should process
this message inmediatly with no exception, but instead, the message is not been processed
until last redelivery of the "bad" message, and it happens several minutes later. When this
happens, message is processed Ok.

   This problem can cause queues to grow unnecessarily if few messages are waiting to be redelivered.
What I expected to happen is messages being processed as they arrive if  there is a consumer
available, but it seems consumers with a rollback in a transaction are not available until
the rollbacked  message is processed again and finally sent to DLQ.

   In addition, in Activemq version 5.2.0, when I remove consumers while waiting for next
redelivery of the message, broker throws this exception (this not happens with 5.3-SNAPSHOT):
