Subject Re: Getting count of messages in a queue (ActiveMQ 5.2.0)
Date Mon, 22 Jun 2009 06:31:48 GMT

You can do it via JMX. You can use an XPATH expression against
http://broker:8161/admin/xml/queues.jsp if you have the admin console
installed. If you have access to the Broker object you can call
broker.getDestinations(activeMQdestination) which is a set of Destination
objects you can call getDestinationStatistics() on to get the enqueues,
dequeues, count, etc... for.

Unfortuantely, if all you have is a connection, session, and queue, the only
way I've found is to use the session to get a QueueBrowser and iterate
through the messages it enumerates. 

It'd be really cool if you there was a way to get a destination statistics
object via a connection or session, but I don't think it presently exists.
