Hi Jörg, I tried out your proposal but stil without success. After googling I've found next issue with similar problem https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMQ-6154
Then I've changed the web.xml to newer Servlet Deployment Descriptor - version 3.1 and added absolute-ordering element. After that, I've redeployed war to Tomcat 8.0.33 and simpleapp works now fine!
@Dan Haywood: maybe this should be adapted in simpleapp archetype as well?
