We are using JBoss3.2.1 with Tomcat.
Last one year We are using file persistence manager for our production server. Recently load is bit high and server is taking 30-45 minutes, if I have 4000 messages in Q.
I have searched in the faq/search and found that File persistence is not supported any not suggested for production servers.
Please let me know whether i can improve the start up time if I change my persistence JDBC2/3 OR wait for the 3.2.4 release (as adrian mentioned we may have some work around for this issue).
Please suggest me, So that we have to take decision of changing production server persistence machanism to JDBC
Download JBoss 3.2.4 and look at the JMS configuration which is bundled. This should work for you. There are several important fixes in 3.2.4. There are examples on how to store messages in Oracle/MySQL/etc. in the docs directory.
