Subject Re: Need Help With A JMS Exception
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2016 12:47:01 GMT
Since you have the 5.5.1 source code, I recommend you attach a debugger to
the broker process and set a breakpoint on the
TopicSubscription.acknowledge() method; the stack will tell you how you got
there.  Setting breakpoints on the broker can lead to instability and may
force you to restart it (plus you have to restart it to enable the debug
port and again to disable it, and it's a security vulnerability while it's
open), so do this in a dev/test environment, not a production one.

You should not expect that there would be a call chain between the two
methods you referenced.  One is executed on the client and one is executed
on the broker, so between the two there is the creation, transmission, and
handling of the acknowledgement message.
