Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-2677) org.apache.activemq.pool.ConnectionPool should not set "started" flag if start() throws an exception

org.apache.activemq.pool.ConnectionPool should not set "started" flag if start() throws an

                 Key: AMQ-2677
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Broker
    Affects Versions: 5.3.1
         Environment: Ubuntu Linux 9.10, Sun JDK 1.6.0_15
            Reporter: Aaron Riekenberg

If org.apache.activemq.pool.ConnectionPool.start throws a JMSException, the "started" flag
in ConnectionPool should not be set to true.  If start() throws an exception, the underlying
ActiveMQConnection object will not be started.  Since started=true, any subsequent calls to
ConnectionPool.start will do nothing, and a non-started connection may be used by the pool.

I ran into this problem when using Camel to consume messages - see the attached test program
for an example.  This test program does the following:

1. Starts a bean consuming from queue test.queue using Camel.  The URL used by Camel to connect
to ActiveMQ is:


The test program uses the default behavior of Camel's ActiveMQComponent which creates a PooledConnectionFactory.

2. Waits 10 seconds, then starts an ActiveMQ broker on port 61616.  During this wait time,
Camel's connection to the broker fails every second and it is continually retrying.

3. Sends 10 messages to the queue "test.queue".

The call to ConnectionPool.start by camel throws an exception after blocking for 1 second
since timeout=1000 is set in the URL.  However the "started" flag is set to true, so subsequent
calls to ConnectionPool.start by Camel on connection retries do not restart the ActiveMQConnection.

So, after step 3 in the test the Camel consumer appears to be connected to the broker, but
it does not receive any messages and I get the following warning:

2010-03-27 09:47:02,994 [ActiveMQ Transport: tcp:///] WARN  org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQSessionExecutor
- Received a message on a connection which is not yet started. Have you forgotten to call

I am attaching a patch to org.apache.activemq.pool.ConnectionPool that does not set started=true
if start throws an exception.  This fixes my test program - now each connection retry by camel
actually attempts to start the ActiveMQConnection.
