Subject Re: messageListener, ASYNC, and threads in "onMessage()"
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2007 07:46:03 GMT
A JMS provider will only invoke a MessageListener on a JMS
MessageConsumer by one thread at once. Indeed; a JMS provider will
invoke the MessageListener on all MessageConsumer's in a given Session
by a single thread at once.
