In my app, I have hundreds of JMS listeners which are plugged on the same topic. I would like these listeners to stop immediately when an error occurs, for example when the JMS provider is down.


I've created my own implementation of org.springframework.util.backoff.BackOff so that the method nextBackOff always return STOP, and I set that BackOff to all my listeners :

this.jmsContainer.setBackOff(new DisabledBackOff());


The problem is in the DefaultMessageListenerContainer.refreshConnectionUntilSuccessful() :

BackOffExecution execution = this.backOff.start();
 while (isRunning()) {
 try {
 if (sharedConnectionEnabled()) {

This code start the BackOffExecution and then immediately try to recover the connection. Then the method BackOffExecution.nextBackOff() is called and the recoverring is stopped.

To avoid the first refresh, I've no choice to raise an Exception when this.backOff.start() is called, but my JMS listener won't be stopped. And it's not a clean solution...

I think nextBackOff should be called before any refresh is intended.
Or maybe there is another solution ?

Affects: 5.0.9
