Looks like an issue with vm connector. Now we are working around by using the tcp connector. In case that password is wrong, no broker is available and incoming requests are refused.
We will use a startup Singleton bean to check, if broker is available, so that startup fails, if there is something wrong. -- Sent from: http://activemq.2283324.n4.nabble.com/ActiveMQ-User-f2341805.html
