Subject Re: ActiveMQ duplex network connector dead lock [5.13.1, 5.11.1]
Date Mon, 14 Mar 2016 02:53:28 GMT
As Art said, the typical configuration is to have one standalone broker
that all clients (producers and consumers) connect to, that is available
even when the clients are not.  This won't work if the clients frequently
are up but don't have network connectivity, or if no one is willing to host
and manage a central broker that's not colocated with the clients, but for
most use cases, this is the preferred configuration.  Is there a reason why
this isn't the configuration you're using?
