Nope :)

But it's completely configurable.. ie, you can specify whether
destinations should be auto-created.. or you can use security to
lockdown people from creating destinations on demand... lots of ways
to do it, but by default the destinations are auto-created as
described in the wiki above.

If you want to have destinations created when the broker starts up,
you could do something like this in the activemq.xml file:

 <broker xmlns="">


      <queue physicalName="FOO.BAR" />

      <topic physicalName="SOME.TOPIC" />



but it's not necessary....

to the ActiveMQ.DLQ queue, then the broker will create it.

 When I start the ActiveMQ broker, I do not see the DLQ defined.  If this is where the expired
messages go to, wouldn't it be a default queue for the default configuration?  If not, then
do I need to define it using that exact name?  What other attributes would I define the queue
