Subject Re: Connection creation timeout setting
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2009 15:27:17 GMT

I'm trying to create a connection such that it will time out if the ActiveMQ
server isn't running rather than blocking indefinitely.  If I do it in a
background thread and it never connects, but rather, blocks indefinitely,
Java provides no way to terminate the thread.

Not to harp on the developers, but this seems like a serious design flaw
especially since underneath it's probably using the Java network stack which
supports connection time outs.

If anyone has any other ideas, I'm open to suggestions or I'm going to be
forced to delve into the code and perhaps implement some type of time out
mechanism on the connection.
