Affects Version/s: 3.7.0, 3.9.3
Fix Version/s: 3.9.4
MSVC (Toolset v90),
I am trying to take advantage of the ActiveMQ priority backup feature.
I'm running 2 brokers on 2 different sites (machines). Each site has 2 AMQ clients, one of which is a Java client and the other one is a C++ client.
Both brokers are linked as network of brokers in duplex mode.
I want the following behavior for my apps.
- Always connect to local broker on startup
- If local broker goes down, connect to the remote
- While connected to remote, if local comes back up, we then reconnect to local.
This works on my java app by simply adding priorityBackup to my URI options
However, the part highlighted in red doesn't work for CPP client.
The following works fine on the CPP apps (with basic working failover functionality - aka jumping to remote when local goes down )
But updating the uri options with priorityBackup even breaks failover functionality completely (my apps never failover to the remote broker, they just stay in some kind of broker-less/limbo state when their local broker goes down)
I tried this with 3.9.3 without success. Then, I tried with the version 3.7.0 when this feature priorityBackup was first introduced but without luck.
ActiveMQ broker versions: 5.9.0, 5.13.2
I'm using Visual Studio 2008 toolset (V90) for my client application.
