Thanks for your prompt replay. I am using ActiveMQ 4.0.1 running under 
Tomcat 5.5.17. I am calling the producer servlet first and then the consumer

Even if I leave a number of minutes between these events the messages 
are still not being found. However running them in a debugger does work 
which suggest receiveNoWait() is failing.

p.s. are there any admin tools I could use to look at messages 
in the queue ?

TIA Peter
