Subject Re: Custom code to browse messages in the message store?
Date Fri, 16 Dec 2016 20:26:48 GMT
So, digging into the message store recoverNextMessages() code, it's tough to
tell what is going in in terms of statefulness.  That method certainly seems
like it would get me the information that i'm after.  two concerns: 1. it
looks to be expecting an existing Transaction (maybe i already have one in
place since i'm working off of an existing session). 2.
"recoverNextMessages" seems to imply that it's basing the notion of "next"
off of current state and calling this method will change that state.  do i
need to do something with the store state to ensure that i don't mess up
this state for normal message consumption?

thanks for your help so far!
