Subject Durable Topic Subscription - Messages not getting persisted in database
Date Mon, 05 Feb 2018 11:56:03 GMT
I am not able to get the messages saved in database for a topic with an
offline durable subscriber. Because of this, if I restart the activemq, the
messages in the topic are lost (not delivered to durable subscriber), where
as the:
    1.  message expiry time has not yet reached 
    2.  and durable subscription still exists 
    3.  and the subscriber successfully reconnects.

*ActiveMQ Version :  5.13.1*

I checked the database table activemq_msgs after stopping activemq, the
table was empty. Additionally, I noted that the table activemq_acks contains
the entry for my durable subscription. Now I restarted activemq, it does not
shows any message in the topic (from web ui), but shows that the durable
subscription exists.

I am testing the scenario where a durable subscriber is both online and
offline, activemq gets restarted and the messages are not delivered to
durable subscriber. I tested this by sending 10000 messages in the topic and
before all get consumed, i stopped and restarted the activemq, I also
monitored the db table activemq_msgs, where not a single row got inserted
when I sent the messages

*Test Scenario#1 : Steps*
     >. create a durable subscriber 
     >. send 10,000 messages to the topic (using activemq web admin ui)
     >. No rows in activemq_msgs table (but web admin shows the messages are
enqueued in topic)
     >. activemq_acks table contains one row which shows the durable
subscription details
     >. restart the broker
     >. durable subscriber reconnects and does not get any message.
     >. web admin also shows zero messages in topic, but the durable still
subscriber exists with status as 
         active durable subscription.

*Test Scenario#2  : Steps*
     >. create a durable subscriber
     >. stop it
     >. send messages to the topic
     >. verify messages on mysql table
     >. mysql table is empty (but web admin shows the messages are enqueued
in topic)
     >. connect the durable subscriber to consume messages
     >. All enqueued messages are dequeued to durable subscriber
     >. mysql table is still empty.

*Configuration is as follows:*

<broker xmlns=""
brokerName="Central-Dev-Broker" persistent="true" 
offlineDurableSubscriberTaskSchedule="3000" useJmx="true">
                <policyEntry topic=">" >
                        <constantPendingMessageLimitStrategy limit="1000"/>

                <policyEntry queue=">">
                        <individualDeadLetterStrategy queuePrefix="DLQ."

        <managementContext createConnector="false"/>
