Subject Re: Yes, and it's an urgent problem [was Re: lock on Oracle activemq_lock table]

I think that's a reasonable scenario, Oracle will actually have
trouble detecting them fast enough. I don't know if there's a setting
in Oracle that would speed up the checks. MySQL and MS SQL Server
detect the disconnect almost instantaneous.
However this should not happen on a clean shutdown. Which version of
ActiveMQ are you using? Maybe there's some problem with the shutdown
in your ActiveMQ-Version.

As a workaround you could turn off the db-locking. But that'll only
work if your not using jdbc-master/slave and if you can make sure that
only one broker is connected. The property to turn off database
locking (not all database locking, but the use of the lock table) is
So you could f.e. use:
        <jdbcPersistenceAdapter dataSource="#mysql-ds" useDatabaseLock="false"/>
This also works with the journaled jdbc.
