Subject Re: ActiveMQ peer mode and durable subscriptions
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2007 17:16:49 GMT
To add some more details to that:

>From experiment, "durable" subscriptions aren't working across two peers in
my current setup (two processes, embedded brokers in each, connecting using
the "peer" mode).  That is, messages are received OK normally, but messages
sent while one of the peers is down are not retransmitted.

Looking in the JMX info, the subscriptions are registered as durable and
seen across peers.  However, the peer connection seems to generate a
different clientId on restart, so I guess the peer doesn't recognise the
restarted peer and thinks it's a new one.

I'm setting the clientId to a persistent value on my connections, but I
guess that affects the connection to the embedded broker only and not the
connection between the two peers.
Is there a way I can set the clientId on the peer connections, so that
restarted peers are recognised as such?  Or is there something else I need
to do to get this setup working?

(I am using ActiveMQ 4.1.1, JDK 6, on Linux).

Many thanks,
