Subject Re: consumer receives on stopped connection
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2008 16:12:26 GMT

Try the following settings for your connection factory

This will turn off the warning message
warnAboutUnstartedConnectionTimeout = -1

alwaysSessionAsync = false

See the following page to read about these options.

Hope this helps,
