Subject Re: expireMessagesPeriod for activemq broker
Date Thu, 25 Sep 2014 14:56:19 GMT
The default value, the meaning of "0", and the units for that field are
documented at
along with all the other options for policies.

In my experience, clients that are delivered an expired message will not
process it.  For the scenario you describe, I don't know whether the broker
or the client would be the one to identify and delete the expired message
(though you could probably check the source code if you were curious), but
the end result will be that the message will not be processed.
