Subject Stomp Client Hoarding Messages
Date Wed, 22 Oct 2008 05:47:14 GMT

Here's the nutshell:

I have AMQ (v5.1.0) running great and my clients subscribe just fine. At
this moment I have between two and three clients connected to AMQ (queue,
FYI, not topic).

Each client reads incoming messages and checks for a keyword against the DB.
When a client does find a match it sends a simple ACK frame back to the
broker and everything is great. When there ISN'T a match, the client holds
onto the message - because there's no ACK sent back - and never releases the
message for any other client to consumer/taste/confirm.

Is there a way to drop (NO-ACK) the message so another client can pick it

I've resorted to tossing the message to another queue but that doesn't scale
well for the applications we have.

Is this behavior inherent in the Stomp client only?

Please advise. There is flexibility here, it's all a matter of understanding
the limitations.
