5.18.8. Lock-Step Delivery Settings

Configure Lock-Step Delivery via the <service>'s <property> settings:
This is a Boolean value. It controls whether or not Lock-Step Delivery is enabled.
This determines the maximum number of milliseconds for which message delivery will be blocked while waiting for a message to be retrieved.
<service category="ServiceCat" name="Service2" 
  description="Test Service">
  <property name="inVMLockStep" value="true" />
  <property name="inVMLockStepTimeout" value="4000" />

  <actions mep="RequestResponse">
    <action name="action" class="org.jboss.soa.esb.mock.MockAction" />


If you are using InVM within the scope of a transaction, lock-step delivery is disabled. This is because the insertion of a message in to the queue is contingent on the commit of the enclosing transaction, which may occur an arbitrary time before or after the expected lock-step wait period.
