for this issue please read the response I sent earlier today to John.

I need to get some clarification on the purpose of persistent
connections and subscriptions. Up until now I had been under the
impression that if I made a persistent subscription and was disconnected
from the server for some reason (my client crashed, network went down,
etc), upon reconnect my subscription would still exist and I would not
have to reissue it. In addition to this, I expected that all messages
that I missed while disconnected would be queued for me and I would
receive them on reconnect.
Today I tried to test this out by creating a persistent subscription and
then pulling my Ethernet cable. Shortly afterward I did a state dump on
xmlBlaster and saw that all references to my connection and
subscriptions were no longer present. After plugging the cable back in
and letting my client reconnect I had no subscriptions.
This is not what I had expected so I jumped onto the xmlBlaster
reference book and from what I was reading it looked like persistent
connections would only come into play if the xmlBlaster server crashed,
not if there was some network disconnect or if the client crashed. Have
I been wrong about the use of persistence all along? If so, is there a
way for xmlBlaster to queue my messages while Iâm disconnected so that I
can receive them on reconnect (and not have to receive everything that I
had already gotten)? If I can receive the missed updates only, will I
received all updates for a topic or only the most recent?
