Subject Need help on messages getting stuck due to message selector

  2. One consumer has a message selector criteria set while the other

between the consumers. 
  4. The consumer which doesn't have the criteria processes the messages
assigned to it without any issue.

message selector) don't get reassigned to the first consumer(without
Could anyone help me in identifying the reason for it?
