Subject ActiveMQ, non-persistent messages, and message expiration behaving correctly???
Date Thu, 06 May 2010 18:12:43 GMT


I'm using ActiveMQ 5.2 and NMS 1.1.

I'm sending non-persistent messages to a broker with an expiration time of 1
hour.  After one hour the messages are not deleted from the queue (can see
through jconsole and web console "number of pending messages").  After one
hour, no more messages are allowed to be sent to the queue because the queue
memory is exhausted.  After one hour, consuming from the queue or drilling
down on the queue link in the web console triggers the deletion of the

Is this normal behavior?  I expected the broker to delete the messages so
that messages could keep being sent to the queue.  Were there any issues
related to this resolved with ActiveMQ 5.3?

I appreciate any help.
