Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-2394) Ajax does not consume the first message in Firefox
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2009 10:29:12 GMT
Ajax does not consume the first message in Firefox

                 Key: AMQ-2394
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 5.3.0
            Reporter: Dejan Bosanac
            Assignee: Dejan Bosanac
             Fix For: 5.4.0

We're trying to use the Jetty continuations MessageListenerService as
an endpoint for an AJAX app where people get near-realtime updates in
their browser, where each end user subscribes to their own queue of
notifications.  (If the user were to leave and then come back, they'd
get another, brand new queue (with a new, unique name - not sure if
this is relevant.)

The plumbing seems to be working pretty well and it's quite a flashy
bit of work, but we're seeing strange behavior with the very first
message placed on the queue just disappearing (the
MessageListenerServlet shows it consumes them but they never come down
the pipe to the browser over HTTP - or maybe they're being sent to a
different client or something?).  Sometimes none of the subsequent
messages ever show up on the client, other times everything works as

We tried unsuccessfully to figure out the cause of the problem,
because it's sporadic, but it seems to be at least somewhat related to
http sessions (a cleanly wiped firefox will work great - but then
repeating the test in the same firefox usually doesn't work) and for
whatever reason safari seems to work OK whether its cache has been
cleared or not.  Since there's a difference between web browsers the
obvious implication is that something is messed up client-side but
we're having a real hard time figuring out what that could be - no JS
exceptions or errors, etc, so we've tried messing with all kinds of
caching to no avail.  This is activemq 5.2.0.  I attached two files,
one is the debug output from a working session (with safari) and one
from a non-working session with firefox - the events seem to all show
up in the logs OK, but for whatever reason they don't make it to the


A simple case to demonstrate, consisting of an html page
with JS that subscribes to a random queue, the _amq js file, and

Refreshing the page (and therefore subscribing to a new random queue)
does not seem to work in firefox, but does work in safari.  any ideas
why that is?

To run the demo, unzip the attached zip file into the /demo directory
of the activemq project, and then hit http://localhost:8161/demo/bug/
in firefox/safari - add things to the queue from the activemq admin
