Subject Re: Why does my JMS message type changes ?
Date Mon, 18 May 2009 08:53:33 GMT

Many thanks to your both.
If I understand correctly, I need to set a header on my message and this
header will be attached to my message.

Unfortunately,After trying hard, I couldn't figure out how to add the
unmarshaled payload as header, and how to make my bean read that header.

I tried something like :

But I can't find anywhere to put unmarshal() on the header.
