Subject ActiveMQ messages not being received
Date Thu, 22 Dec 2011 21:04:38 GMT
We use Camel to send and receive messages from ActiveMQ and observe that
seemingly randomly our integration tests fail. I have not been able to
observe any pattern and even with Camel turned up to TRACE level, see no
exceptions/errors in the logs.

Most test cases are a variation of the following:

create route from jms topic (with no selector) -> bean
create route from jms topic (with a selector) -> bean
send a message (that would have been satisfied by the selector)
sleep 5 seconds
assert the beans received the message.

What we observe is that the listeners are registered alright:

[                          main] JmsConsumer                    DEBUG
Starting consumer: Consumer[activemq://topic:Assets?selector=]


[                          main] JmsConsumer                    DEBUG
Starting consumer:

The message is sent alright:

[l) thread #18 - seda://enqueue] Configuration$CamelJmsTemplate TRACE Sent
JMS message to: topic://Assets with message: ActiveMQBytesMessage {commandId
= 0, responseRequired = false, messageId =
ID:hudson-56463-1324586663618-0:4:3:1:1, originalDestination = null,
originalTransactionId = null, producerId = null, destination =
topic://Assets, transactionId = null, expiration = 0, timestamp =
1324586696947, arrival = 0, brokerInTime = 0, brokerOutTime = 0,
correlationId = null, replyTo = null, persistent = false, type = null,
priority = 4, groupID = null, groupSequence = 0, targetConsumerId = null,
compressed = false, userID = null, content =
org.apache.activemq.util.ByteSequence@1da4d2c0, marshalledProperties = null,
dataStructure = null, redeliveryCounter = 0, size = 0, properties =
{source=WEB, eventType=Create}, readOnlyProperties = false, readOnlyBody =
false, droppable = false} ActiveMQBytesMessage{ bytesOut = null, dataOut =
null, dataIn = null }

but it is not received by the listeners. The fact that the same tests pass
once in a while for the same set of messages is very confusing. We have also
tried adding a sleep between the time the message is done and the
assertation is done to rule out any race conditions but still no luck; the
random failures continue.

We run the ActiveMQ instance for the tests using the activemq-tooling maven

mvn activemq:run test

Any clues/pointers greatly appreciated

PS: Apologies if this does not appear to be Camel issue and but an ActiveMQ
