Subject Re: Producer blocks when trying to send async JMS messages to failed broker
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2012 10:32:52 GMT
configure the failover maxReconnectAttempts and the failure to connect
will bubble up to the application where you can ignore it.
The assumption of failover is that you want to 'transparently'
maintain the connection and block pending reconnect

failover:(...)? maxReconnectAttempts=1

ActiveMQ broker. Unfortunately when that broker goes down the client starts to block even
though I am using the Camel asyncSendBody method. See below for the stack trace.

go live with my application in this state and I really don't want to put another queue in
place to decouple the JMS producer. Is there something I am doing wrong? If the broker is
down I am quite happy for these messages to be lost - they lose their meaning if not delivered
