Subject Re: Producer blocks when trying to send async JMS messages to failed broker
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2012 10:41:10 GMT
Thanks Gary. I am still not completely sure I get it. I am using failover because I *do* want
my client to reconnect when the broker comes back up. However, when it's down I don't want
to queue messages or block anything - they can be thrown away. My messages really are 'fire
and forget'. These lose their meaning if not delivered to their ultimate destination within
2 seconds or so.

My expectation was that I would be able to asynchronously send messages and never block. I
have tried using non-persistent messages, and telling the transport not to track messages.

If I do what you suggest won't the failover transport wait 10ms, try to reconnect once and
then give up forever? Wouldn't that mean someone has to take manual action to reestablish
the connection?

Sorry if I am missing the point.
