You might be sending binary messages, which can't be received by ajax clients.  Check the
"Receiving messages" section of

"Be aware that, by default, messages published via Stomp which include a content-length header
will be converted by ActiveMQ to binary messages, and will not be visible to your web clients.
Beginning with ActiveMQ 5.4.0, you can resolve this problem by always setting the amq-msg-type
header to text in messages which will may be consumed by web clients."

Check your http://localhost:8161/admin/topics.jsp after your page loads.  Does the topic exist?
 Does the 'Number of Consumers' go up when your page loads?  Do you see messages being published
to the topic?

What's returned by the server?  Is it maybe one of these?
 * "<ajax-response></ajax-response>" : This is what a timeout looks like.  No
messages received.
 * "<ajax-response><response id='test' destination='topic://topic/ActiveMQFeed' ></response></ajax-response>"
: This is what it looks like when the server delivers a binary message.

I recall seeing a similar error message after a timeout.  (An empty <ajax-response>
was returned, but with a content-type of 'text/plain', which made the jQuery code unable to
parse the response.)  That particular problem should be fixed, so if it's still occurring
I'd like to know.  Or your issue may be totally unrelated.

I'd be really interested to know what the server response looks like when you see this error,
including all headers and content.
