Redelivery Policy

Detail on when messages are redelivered to a client can be found in the Message Redelivery and DLQ Handling section.

You can configure the RedeliveryPolicy on your ActiveMQConnectionFactory or ActiveMQConnection to customize exactly how you want the redelivery to work.

You can use Java code, Spring or the Connection Configuration URI to customise this.

RedeliveryPolicy per Destination

As of ActiveMQ v5.7.0 you can now configure a RedeliveryPolicy on a per-destination bases. The ActiveMQConnection factory class now exposes a RedeliveryPolicyMap property that allows to assign a RedeliveryPolicy using named destinations or using destination wildcards. The code snipped below shows how to configure a different RedeliveryPolicy for Topics and Queues.
