Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3243) ActiveMQ violates System Properties
Date Tue, 04 Dec 2007 23:25:43 GMT


solprovider commented on GERONIMO-3243:

ActiveMQ-4.1.1 is broken. The fix was committed to ActiveMQ in July.  ActiveMQ-5.0 is fixed
and available as snapshots.  

Geronimo-2.0.1 and 2.0.2 have been released with ActiveMQ-4.1.1; this issue was unresolved.
 Does the Geronimo project believe releasing broken code is more important than not releasing
snapshots of library dependencies?

Kevan Miller removed that this issue affects Geronimo-1.2 so administrators of the older Geronimo
will be unaware the issue affects their servers.  Kevan reassigned this issue to Geronimo-2.1.
 (Is 2.0.3 or 2.1 the next release?)

development please add all affected versions?)

> The permanent fix is for Geronimo to update to a better version of ActiveMQ, either downgrading
to before the bug was programmed or wait for the ActiveMQ team to follow the standards.  That
is unlikely to be tested and released quickly.

line at the beginning of STARTUP.BAT:

property in a Geronimo SystemProperties gbean, there's one called ServerSystemProperties in
