You can use the persistent option when sending messages to the broker,
so those files will be stored on the server until the consumer
dequeues them.

As for restarting the Java client in an automated fashion, as I said
beforehand, the closing of a connection is a client lifecycle event
that application code can register itself to receive notifications.
This done using the ShutdownListener callback definition. Having said
that, I'm not 100% sure what is the cleanest way to automate restarts,
because I think that there would be a number of things that you would
want to consider before just blindly restarting a dead connection.
This is because the shutdown handler executes in the context of the
connection that has been closed, so whether it is appropriate to start
a new connection "on the back" of a dead connection is a question that
Hubert (who maintains the Java client) may be able to answer.
