    CLIENT acknowledge not working as expected

    jaikiran pai Master

      I am using JBoss 3.2.3. I have an class which writes to a queue which is listened by a MDB.

      I am using :

      queueSession = queueConnection.createQueueSession(false,Session.CLIENT_ACKNOWLEDGE);

      to create a queue session. When i write out a message to the queue, it is picked by the MDB and control reaches the onMessage method.

      Here's the code in my onMessage:

      public void onMessage(Message message) {
       System.out.println("Hello in onMessage");
       try {
       System.out.println("Acknowledged msg");
       } catch (JMSException e) {
       System.out.println("exception acknowleding msg");
       try {
       System.out.println("Woke up"); } catch (InterruptedException e1) {
       System.out.println("Could not sleep");

      I have acknowledged the message by invoking message.acknowledge().
      What i am trying to do here is whenever the control reaches the onMessage(i.e. the message is delivered) i want to acknowledge the same so that it WONT be REDELIVERED even if some exception occurs later.

      What i tried out was:
      Once the control reached onMessage and the "Sleeping" message was displayed on the console, i SHUTDOWN jboss(Note: The onMessage wasnt yet finished since it had gone into sleep). Later i started jboss again.
      What i found was the message WAS REDELIVERED and the control reached onMessage again.

      What i was expecting was once i acknowledged the message, it should NOT be redelivered irrespective of what happens later in onMessage method.

      Can anyone please tell me whether i am doing this right?

      Thank you
