Subject Re: ActiveMQ.DLQ

ActiveMQ by default auto-creates destinations as it needs/requires
them. You don't have to define the DLQ explicitly. If a message goes
to the ActiveMQ.DLQ, or if a consumer listens to the ActiveMQ.DLQ
queue, then the broker will create it.

You can set up queues ahead of time if you'd like, but it's not necessary.

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 with?
