Subject [jira] Commented: (AMQNET-293) Consumer is not recovered after failover reconnect if connection had been lost in OnMessage (before SendACK)
Date Wed, 01 Dec 2010 16:11:14 GMT


Timothy Bish commented on AMQNET-293:

These changes were just some initial work that needed to be done to clean up some of the failover
handling code.  I will work on this more in the coming week once I get back into the office.
 You are welcome to continue to inspect the code and compare it with the Java client to see
where we are going wrong in the mean time.

> 2. Create the session and the QueueConsumer for queue e.g. "TestQueue" (in default AutoAcknoledged
> 3. For queue consumer set the message listener e.g. OnMessage
> 4. In OnMessage method do something like Sleep(5000) and then display the received textMessage
(by Invoke add the messge to listbox).
> 5. By means of localhost:8161/admin create the TestQueue and put to this queue about
20 persistent text messages.

> The problem is in NMS.
> Most likely when you restart ActiveMQ broker the client app will be in OnMessage method
(just sleeping there for 5 seconds). When those 5 seconds is over then the NMS is trying to
SendACK. And this method will not end until failover thread successfully reconnect.. For that
time there is a lock on the unconsumedMessages.SynchRoot (see MessageConsumer.Dispatch method).
And this fact is painful for another thread which is trying to do the unconsumedMessage.Clear()
and needs the locked resource. (this thread is initated in Connection.OnTransportInterrupted()
and it wants to call ClearMessagesInProgress on MessageConsumer).
> The worst thing is that the MessageConsumer.ClearMessagesInProgress method cannot call
(as waits for locked resource) TransportInterruptionProcessingComplete() which I guess registers
consumers which have to be recovered when the connection is back.
> So when the connection is back:
> SendAck completes
> Failover thread DoRecover but does not find our consumer.
> Dispatch method unlocks the unconsumedMessages.SynchRoot
> The working thread registers consumers to be recovered (absolutely too late!!!!)
