Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-3405) DLQ messages moved/copied into original queue disappear after failing processing for a second time
Date Wed, 17 Aug 2011 08:00:28 GMT


Stephen Brandwood commented on AMQ-3405:

Timothy, I have found that any message I create through the admin console will also not be
sent to the DLQ, even if I set it as persistent. Do you know the cause for this?

>                 URL:
>             Project: ActiveMQ
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Broker
>    Affects Versions: 5.4.2

> 1. Message in queue A fails enough times to be moved to the DLQ.
> 2. We move/copy the message back to queue A to attempt reprocessing. Invoking the retry
operation from JMX can also be used.
> 3. The consumer once again fails to consume the message greater than the max number of
> 4. The message is not put back into the DLQ. If it was moved rather than copied, it means
we have a message that was never successfully consumed, but has nevertheless disappeared.
> This is all with the default ActiveMQ settings, though I tried adjusted the DLQ configuration
to support both expired and non-persistent messages.
> I found this posting which seems to indicate the same issue I am seeing:
One difference that I am seeing is that restarting ActiveMQ does not cause the message to
show up in the DLQ again. Once it is lost, it is lost forever.
> To replicate this, I believe you can use a consumer that just fails on every invocation.
> One interesting thing is that if I put a message into the DLQ directly, then move it
to a queue with a consumer, it will end up in the DLQ again as you would expect. If I then
move the DLQ message back to the original queue, it will then show the bevahiour outlined
