Subject Re: Restart of embedded broker causes BrokerStoppedException
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2008 14:45:46 GMT

More digging done...

I guess this is the same issue as mentioned in

and it seems like the cause is that when stopping the broker an "ErrorBroker
filter" is added to intercept any calls to the stopped broker (a good thing
But since the succeeding start call uses the same instance of the broker as
stop did it's intercepted by the ErrorBroker filter when trying to start it
thus causing a BrokerStoppedException.

A solution is to create a new instance of the broker, but shouldn't actually
a call to start() remove any ErrorBroker filters being placed there when
stopping it?
