Virtual topics with selectorAware=true with camel-jms

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We are using a virtual topic in ActiveMQ, and our Camel route consumes from an appropriately named queue. If the route is stopped, messages build up in the queue as we would expect (standard behaviour for a durable topic subscription). H
  • However, want to add a message selector to the route, as only certain messages should be processed. To prevent the build up of other messages in the queue, we have set the selectorAware property to true. While the route is running this works fine. However, when the route is stopped no messages build up in the queue. It seems that setting selectorAware to true effectively changes the subscription to be non-durable. Is there another setting that needs to be made to correct this?
  • Is the relation between message selector <-> message queue is 1-to-1 relation ?
