Subject Re: QueueBrowser does not return large messages
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 10:26:25 GMT
I would expect some sort of truncation on the body of a large message
for the UI. So show only a few 100 bytes. <> sort of thing.
Like we do when we log a message.

If you use jconsole, do you see the full 20MB?

To implement browsing limited to headers, that would require some code
changes to support it. I think simplest would be a broker side
destination policy that limits a browse to headers only.

There would be more work to add it as a consumer option, or maybe hack
it into the selector in some way.

In any event, please raise an enhancement request, this is worth some
more thought and it would be easy/low impact to work in the
destination policy.
