Hi,

I don't think I understand what you are trying to ask.
you can "publish" messages to topic/queue and you can become listener to messages destinate to  specfic topic/queue (this is to "subscribe" to this specfic topic/queue).

Note that the subscribe/publish words, there proper use is in context of topic and not of queue.

In general Object can make himself listener (subscribe himself) and subscribe other object before/after he subscribe himself I have alreday done it.

Best regards
Nir

Hi Nir
What I mean to ask is if subscriber can consume messages that where published to the topic before it connect that topic as subscriber?

Is it possible control this via the setTimeToLive() method of topicPublisher class? What happen to a message that have TTL of 60 seconds and after 30 seconds subscriber register himself to that topic? will he get that message even that he register after the message sent to that topic?

Hi Danny,

For retrieving all messages (including ones that you were inactive)on topic, you should subscribe as durable subscriber.

Offcourse if a message have expired, you won't get it.

Hope it help.

Hi Nir
Do you mean expired after time to live? By default time to live value is set to zero (from documentation) which means unlimited time am I right?
What does durable means? Isn't it only for cases when the server is falling down and then up?

Hi Danny,

yes you right the deafult is unlimited time, message never expires (Although I am not certain the value is zero, if you want to set expiration simple use setJMSExpiration(long expiration)).

for the second part no, in API:
"If a client needs to receive all the messages published on a topic, including the ones published while the subscriber is inactive, it uses a durable TopicSubscriber. The JMS provider retains a record of this durable subscription and insures that all messages from the topic's publishers are retained until they are acknowledged by this durable subscriber or they have expired. "

Best regards
Nir
