I already have the info decoded (I didn't provide that example because
I thought you wanted to see the raw info and transactions).

The issue is that I will be periodically querying the broker to get its
list of queues and their info, so I need to know when the 'end of the list'
is reached.

And since the list of queues can be different during any specific request,
the best I can see is to use a timeout mechanism that assumes that...
if I haven't seen another response message (in a few seconds)
(and that the system wasn't too busy to respond to me...),
that the list should now be considered complete
(ie. I won't be getting any more messages) and so I can perform
my 'correlation activity' on what I had received to-date.

...then sometime later... do the whole thing over again.

if that doesn't help, you can interrogate the broker via jmx to determine

Unfortunately, JMX is not an option for me at the moment.
