Subject How to purge old messages when no consumer exists?
Date Fri, 27 Mar 2009 17:58:42 GMT

Non persistent messages are gradually being produced into a queue with some
TTL.  The message consumer application is down or cannot access the activemq
broker.  How do I purge expired messages?  It turns out that without a
consumer, the broker will not proactively purge expired messages
(, at least not until
version 5.3.0.  What are other folks doing to solve this problem?
