We test on Solaris, Linux and Windows. On Window boxes one can cause connection
ping timeouts by simply disconnecting the box from the network. A significant percentage
of such tests, the dead letter queue connections do not recover. On Solaris and Linux
disconnecting from the network does not produce ping timeout events.
Once a connection starts failing the timeouts, unless one has an exceptionlistener
register, the log file fills with the ping timeout notification.
So, on Windows this is something that is easy to produce and at customer sites having
the log files filled with such notification just because some IT guy disconnected a
cable by mistake is not an unlikely event (and unnerves the customer).
Yes, a dead letter queue is only used in the event of some other error but its the filling of
the log file thats the customer-visible problem.
Please keep the discussions in the forums. JIRA goes in the release notes.
