    [HELP] Unable to consume reply message from MQ Queue

    Sheeraz Junejo Newbie

      I am having problem consuming messages from MQ Server Queue. I am using  WebSphere MQ Server 7 with my web application to put messages on IN  Queue which will then Consume by my MDB deployed on jBoss and put reply  back on OUT Queue.

      My web application is deployed on jBoss 4.2.3 and I am using MQ Resource Adapter to connect to MQ Server.

      I am able to successfully put message on IN Queue where MDB is listening  which consume the messages, do some processing and put reply back on  OUT Queue where my web application is waiting for a response but it get  TIMED OUT. I mean I can see the response in MQ Explorer which is just  sitting there waiting to be consumed but my web application can not  recognize for some reason.

      I have tried with simpler Co-relation ID like '1' but didn't work. I am using following code to do all of the above;


      Connection connection = null;
      Session session = null;
      MessageProducer producer = null;
      Destination reqQueue = null;
      Destination repQueue = null;
      try {
      timeStart = System.currentTimeMillis();
      InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(); // Initial Context of type JMS Connection Factory
      Object factoryObj = ctx.lookup(jmsCxFactory);
      ConnectionFactory cxf = (ConnectionFactory)factoryObj;

      connection = cxf.createConnection();
      session = connection.createSession(false, Session.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
      _serviceLocator = new ServiceLocator(); // Look up queues
      reqQueue = _serviceLocator.lookupDestination("queue/INQueue");
      repQueue = _serviceLocator.lookupDestination("queue/OUTQueue");
      producer = session.createProducer(reqQueue); // Register a producer
      Message jmsMsg = session.createTextMessage(message); // Assign request  to Message object so we can send it to Database Server later.
      jmsMsg.setJMSReplyTo(repQueue); // Preparing a class to wait for a response on Response queue
      producer.setDisableMessageID(false); // Make sure messages gets an id
      String correlationId = "1"; // Get and set unique Correlation ID so we can receive correct messages
      jmsMsg.setStringProperty("FORMAT", pingLevel); // Set the message format
      producer.send(jmsMsg); // Put message on Queue
      MessageConsumer receiver = session.createConsumer(repQueue, "JMSCorrelationID='" + correlationId + "'"); // Now receive message
      long JMSConnectionTimeout = 5000L; // Set timeout value - Default 10 Sec.
      Message reply = receiver.receive(JMSConnectionTimeout); // Now receive a response
      if (reply instanceof TextMessage) {
      String response = ((TextMessage)reply).getText();
      passedReq++; // Increment in the passed request counter
      } else {
      finalResponse += "Request : Timed Out..."; <--- Always timed Out and control ends up here
      failedReq++; // Increment in number of time out requests
      catch (NamingException e) {
      finalResponse += "Error Occured : Naming Exception - " + e.getMessage();
      catch (JMSException e) {
      finalResponse += "Error Occured : JMS Exception - " + e.getMessage();
      catch (RuntimeException e) {
      finalResponse += "Error Occured : Runtime Exception - " + e.getMessage();
      finally {

      Does anyone know what could be the reason and why its happening? Your help and comments will be appreciated.
