Subject Re: Guaranteed message delivery until session timeout?
Date Thu, 01 Jul 2010 17:28:51 GMT
When a connectionloss happens all the watches are triggered saying that
connectionloss occurred. But on a reconnect the watches are reset
automagically  on the new server and will be fired if the change has already
happened or will be reset!

I hope that answers your question.

Thanks
