Subject Synchronizations removed at JTA resume - bug?
Date Sat, 17 Nov 2012 10:34:41 GMT
I've spent quite some time trying to figure out why ActiveMQ retry does 
not work for us with JTA, and I may finally have found the reason.

In org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQMessageConsumer.registerSync() there is a 
synchronization registered, that would handle the rollback (specifically 
deliveredMessages.clear()) so that message is not considered to be 
delivered, but can be redelivered.

However, in out case the JTA transaction of the ActiveMQ consumer is 
suspended and later resumed, before it is rolled back.

JTA specification 
section 3.2.3:
"When the application’s transaction context is resumed, the application 
server ensures that the resource in use by the application is again 
enlisted with the transaction. Enlisting a resource as a result of 
resuming a transaction triggers the Transaction Manager to inform the 
resource manager to re-associate the resource object with the resumed 
transaction (XAResource.start(TMRESUME))."

So when JTA transaction is resume()d the Resin JTA transaction manager 
calls org.apache.activemq.TransactionContext.start(), in which the the 
synchronizations list is set to null!

It seems to me that some JTA implementations do not call 
XAResource.start() on resume() even though the spec says so (the way I 
read it), which may explain why this works for some people.

Would anyone agree if I claim there is a bug in ActiveMQ, that prevents 
it from working properly with resumed JTA transactions...?
