Subject Messages Never Arrive At Broker
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 20:36:35 GMT
Hi all, 

Apologies for potential double-posts—Nabble doesn't seem to be working right, so I decided
to try the ML directly.

I'm using ActiveMQ 5.4.2, with queues and non-persistent messaging. The operating system is
SLES 10 (Linux 2.6.18), JVM 1.6, running a 64-bit server VM. I'm not using any application
server on the producer end, just creating a connection factory manually.

A Java producer is being used to send messages to STOMP-based consumers (primarily Flex/Flash,
but maybe also JavaScript in the future). The STOMP clients also produce some messages, and
those arrive fine, and the Java consumer is able to pick them up and react to them (including
sending a message back—this happens on a different queue than the problem queue though).
However, when the Java producer begins to send messages, no messages arrive in the problem
queue. The pending count never increases, and the STOMP consumers never get any messages.
Producer flow control is turned off, and as mentioned earlier, messages are not persistent.
They're also set to expire after 2.5 seconds.

My code looks like this: 
Message m;

try {
    m = sess.createTextMessage(inputMessage);
} catch (JMSException e) {
    l.error("Error creating ActiveMQ message. Error message: ", e);

try {
    producer.send(m); ("Message sent to broker.");
} catch (JMSException e) {
    l.error("Error sending ActiveMQ message. Error message: ", e);
l is a log4j Logger, and sess is a session obtained from an ActiveMQConnectionFactory. The
factory is set up as such: ActiveMQConnectionFactory factory = new ActiveMQConnectionFactory(brokerUrl),
and async dispatch/sending is disabled (though having it enabled didn't help either). 

A different queue (with a different producer) works just fine—the JMS producer is able to
send a message to the queue, and it's received on the STOMP end. Is there any reason why my
JMS producer wouldn't work on one queue, and would work for another, when STOMP works fine
for both producing and consuming? I was getting some dead letter queue errors earlier, but
resolved them by telling the dead letter queue to not handle messages that expire. If my messages
are going to the dead letter queue, how can I establish why, so that I can fix the issue?
