Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQ-1807) Activemq stops dispatching messages aborting transaction (STOMP)
Date Wed, 19 Aug 2009 11:38:37 GMT

Dejan Bosanac commented on AMQ-1807:
------------------------------------

Hi Celso,

I think you're confusing transaction rollback and death of consumer.

In case when consumer dies, the broker will detect it and will append all messages that are
dispatched but not acknowledged by that consumer (all the messages you have acked in the transaction
that hasn't been committed) to the end of the dispatch list. So these messages will be redelivered
again to another consumer eventually. This works now in the same way for JMS and Stomp clients.

But when we rollback the transaction, we say to the broker that we haven't yet consumed messages
that were delivered to us. So the broker will wait for those messages to be acked before sending
more messages. This also works in the same way for Java and Stomp clients, it's just that
JMS Java client has built-in logic that will try to redeliver those messages first (locally)
when you start a new transaction. You can also implement the same logic in your Stomp client
(or application).

The whole point is that redelivery of messages after the rollback, is the task for the client,
since there's no need for the broker to resend those messages over the network again.

Hope this helps,
Dejan

> As requested by Dejan Bosanac, I'm adding this ticket. I'm willing to help fix it, ie.
I can get my hands dirty, but I must have some pointers on where to look because (unfortunately)
I don't have much time to learn ActiveMQ's internals and architecture.
> A copy of the email I sent to the users mailing-list:
> =============================================
> I'm currently struggling to understand the reason behind that's causing the behaviour
described in the subject: I'm connecting to activemq via stomp on a python app. Because I
need to have the messages rolled back in case of some processing failure I'm wrapping the
message processing in the following way:
>  message received -> start transaction -> ack message in transaction ->
> process message -> if no exception commit tx, else rollback transaction
> AFAIK, this is the only way of making message unacknowledgement possible with stomp.
Also, this is a single client connection, ie. I'm using a
> single client connection to create a message processing daemon, all messages are sent
and received via this single connection to the MQ server.
> Here's a telnet session that can be used to reproduce the problem (open jconsole and
send 5 text messages to the queue):

> I see a couple of issues here:
> #1) even though I specified activemq.prefetchSize to 1 in the subscription command, the
connector dispatches two messages in a row
> #2) no more messages are dispatched after aborting the transaction/acknowledging the
last received message. Even if the second message isn't wrapped in a transaction, message
dispatch stops there.
> To add to the confusion, if I don't use transactions _at all_, my client keeps getting
messages, one by one, ie. no two messages are sent together, I only get a new message after
ACK'ing the previous one.
> I think I may be stepping into the realms of a buggy STOMP connector. Please tell me
if I'm missing something obvious that fixes this issue
> (hence making it a non-issue) or if indeed the STOMP connector has problems.
