RECOVERY.RETRY.INTERVAL at listener port level

Im using websphere application server v5.1.2
and have a number of mdbs/listener ports set up.

I'd like to be able to chnage the listener port retry interval at the listener port level instead of at the server level (e.g. NOT using RECOVERY.RETRY.INTERVAL)

Does anyone know a way of doing this ?

Thanks (very much) in advance


The time in seconds between retry attempts by a listener port to recover from a failure. The maximum number of retry attempts is defined by the MAX.RECOVERY.RETRIES custom property.
A failure can be one of two things:

An unexpected error has occurred when a listener port tries to get a message from the JMS provider.
The connection between the application server and the JMS provider has been lost, usually due to a network error.

Data type Integer
Units Seconds
Default 60
Range 1 through 2147483647

I'll take a stab... visit:

To summerize, open the Admin Console and go to:

"Servers > Application Servers > [your server] > Communications / Messaging > Message Listener Service > Listener Ports > [your port]

There should be a list of settings including, "Maximum retries".

That help?

thanks but thats not quite what I'm after,

Im trying to get just one of my listener ports to wait 60 minutes before restarting while all the others use the default setting of 60 seconds

the recover retry interval custom property affects all listeners,

the max retries setting does not affecct retyr interval

thanks for replying
I agree. Here's the link:
