Subject Python: How to consume one message?
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2008 02:02:06 GMT
This is my first time using QPID and I'm trying to write a simple 
producer/consumer setup.  My producer is sending messages and the QPID 
broker is receiving and storing them just fine.  However, I want a 
consumer to process one message at a time.  My consumer code looks 
something like this:


client = Client(host, port, qpid.spec.load(amqp_spec))
client.start({"LOGIN": user, "PASSWORD": password})
channel = client.channel(1)
reply = channel.basic_consume(queue="message_queue", no_ack=True)
queue = client.queue(reply.consumer_tag)
msg = queue.get(timeout=1)
print "Consumer gets this message: ", msg.content.body

I have a broker that has 10 messages on it.  When I run the consumer I 
get this:
Consumer gets this message:  I am a test message
Unhandled exception in thread started by
Error in sys.excepthook:

Original exception was:

When I run the consumer again, this is the output:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./consumer.py", line 31, in ?
    msg = queue.get(timeout=1)
  File "/usr/pic1/qpid-1.0-all/Python/python/qpid/queue.py", line 38, in get
    result = BaseQueue.get(self, block, timeout)
  File "/rel/lang/python/2.4.4-6/lib/python2.4/Queue.py", line 127, in get
    raise Empty

What am I doing wrong that all the messages in my queue are wiped out 
after I consume one message?
