You can configure the destination prefetch on the broker configuration via a
DestinationPolicy rather than on the destination in JNDI. Or on the
connection factory. See:
http://activemq.apache.org/what-is-the-prefetch-limit-for.html

Prefetch 0 is useful for a polling consumer, a message is dispatched on
request. With a listener there needs to be some preemptive dispatching,
hence a prefetch > 0.

Dispatching to a new consumer in activemq is by default asynchronous. For
that reason, for synchronous consumers we would recommend looping a timed
receive while null is returned.

while ((msg = receive(timeout)) == null) { // do something else for a bit}


Using dispatchAsync=false is an alternative option for ensuring that
available messages are immediately dispatched to a new synchronous consumer.

But in essence, that root cause is not a bug, it is by design. hope this
helps.
