We are using an application that contains a jboss @Service mbean which encapsulates a javax.jms.Connection object.

During startup of the mbean the connection is created by initializing a remote InitialContext, looking up the ConnectionFactory from that context, and creating a connection from that factory:

public class JMSPublisher extends etcc.... {
  private Connection connection;
  protected void startService() {
    Context ctx = getRemoteInitialContext();
    ConnectionFactory connectionFactory = (ConnectionFactory) ctx.lookup("ConnectionFactory");
    connection = connectionFactory.createConnection();

My question is: how long can we be supposed to maintain that connection ? In practise we see that the connection throws a JMSException when we try to create a session on it after an undefined amount of time.

The documentation of Connection tells us that an object represents a socket, so timeouts due to inactivity could be normal. But how can we deal with it without creating new connections for each and every message ?
