    Client Not Processing Messages When Server Shutdown

    Ralph Peterson Newbie

      When JBoss 5.1.0 server is shutdown and restarted, new messages in a server queue (org.jboss.mq.server.jmx.Queue) are not processed by the QueueReceiver on the client.

      Here is a snippet of the client side code that waits for messages:

      while (true) {
       try {
       log.debug("receiving message");
       ObjectMessage message = (ObjectMessage) consumer.receive(QUEUE_WAIT_SECONDS * 1000);
       if (message != null) {
       log.debug("got a message");
       return message;
       } else {
       log.debug("No message found for " + QUEUE_WAIT_SECONDS + " seconds");
       } catch (InvalidDestinationException ide) {
       log.error("Reply queue no longer exists");
       } catch (Exception e) {
       throw e;

      In the same scenario, JBoss 4 threw an exception. JBoss 5 does not, instead, we see the 'No message found...' log entry.

      So for JBoss5, how does the queue receiver become aware of the server shutdown/startup?
