Subject Reply:RedeliveryPolicy not working with Springs DefaultMessageListenerContainer
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2011 08:02:34 GMT
Hi  Marek,it should work because the consumer of amq will try to catch runtime expection if
messageListener fails to process message.
Then the message will be redispatch to the messageListener again if not out of the max delivery
I have found that spring's SimpleMessageListenerContainer will swallow all exceptions instead
of propagating exception to the underlying so redelivery will not work on that.
