WebLogic, move JMS messages in Java

Here how to move JMS messages in WLST http://www.javamonamour.org/2011/09/wlst-move-jms-messages.html

Here the Javadoc of the JMSDestinationRuntimeMBean.moveMessages():


selector is "JMSMessageID = '${jmsmessageid}'"

javax.management.openmbean.CompositeData you can get it with the JMSDestinationRuntimeMBean.getDestinationInfo() method.

So this code will work:

// ctx is a proper InitialContext

  String destinationJNDI = request.getParameter("destinationJNDI");
  String intermediateJNDI = destinationJNDI.replace("ReprocessQ", "Q");
  String jmsmessageid = request.getParameter("jmsmessageid");
  javax.jms.Queue queue = (javax.jms.Queue) ctx.lookup(destinationJNDI);
  javax.jms.Queue intermediateQueue = (javax.jms.Queue) ctx.lookup(intermediateJNDI);
  // lookup the queue connection factory
  QueueConnectionFactory queueConnFactory = (QueueConnectionFactory) ctx.lookup(WEBLOGIC_JMS_XA_CONNECTION_FACTORY);
  // create a queue connection
  QueueConnection queueConn = queueConnFactory.createQueueConnection();
  // create a queue session
  Session queueSession = queueConn.createQueueSession(false, Session.AUTO_ACKNOWLEDGE);
  // start the connection
  JMSDestinationRuntimeMBean reprocessQueueMBean = JMSRuntimeHelper.getJMSDestinationRuntimeMBean( ctx, queue);
  JMSDestinationRuntimeMBean intermediateQueueMBean = JMSRuntimeHelper.getJMSDestinationRuntimeMBean( ctx, intermediateQueue);
  // see http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24001_01/apirefs.1111/e13951/mbeans/JMSDestinationRuntimeMBean.html?skipReload=true#moveMessages
  reprocessQueueMBean.moveMessages("JMSMessageID = '" + jmsmessageid + "'", intermediateQueueMBean.getDestinationInfo());

Could you please tell me how to get jmsmessageid in the above code or post the full code.


Pierluigi Vernetto said...

the code above is to move a specific message..... you can find the jmsmessageid using a queue browser (HermesJMS or use standard QueueBrowser from Java) or even using WebLogic console JMS queue browser.

Thanks for the reply
I got jmsmessageid, but the messages are not moved to the destination queue. could you please help me out

dear friend from India, you are trying to move a JMS message to a queue before it has been consumed (acknowledged)... I am not sure this is supported in JEE... normally you would simply Create a new message and post it to a queue, then consume the old message (it's automatically acknowledged by the MDB, so no need to explicitly acknowledge). COPY+DELETE is equivalent to a MOVE. Just don't try to move the message while you are processing it...

Menaka Balakrishnamoorthy said...

IS there other way to move message from one queue to another? Please let me know

Pierluigi Vernetto said...

the answer was already in my previous comment: not while you are handling the message. Just copy the message to the other queue (by creating a new message) and consume the message. No need to MOVE.
