Subject RE: purging an ActiveMQ queue
Date Wed, 05 Mar 2008 15:49:07 GMT
Thanks I'll create it as retroactive.  Problem is, how can I tell the broker
to purge the msgs at midnight so I get only msgs from the current day?
Would I just schedule a messageConsumer.close() ?

For queues, messages stay on a queue until they expire. For topics,
normally you only get messages sent after you start subscribing
(unless you use persistent topic subscriptions) though ActiveMQ
supports Subscription Recovery for this kinda stuff...
