Subject Re: Setting BytesMessage content type
Date Fri, 22 Jul 2011 15:30:44 GMT
Sorry for the late reply. I did notice this a few days ago when
debugging for an unrelated issue.
However reading the JMS API doc, it seems the 'type' has a different
meaning than merely content-type.
In other words a particular type of message could support several content-types.
For example "text/plain", "text/html" and "text/xml" could be valid
content-types  for a particular message "type".

Therefore I believe we should do the following.
1) If an application sets a value using setJMSType, then we carry it
using "x-jms-type" and allow it be retrieve on the consumer side using
getJMSType (if the consumer is a jms application).

2) Use "x-amqp-0-10.content-type" to get/set the content type.
    Since content type is really not tied to particular AMQP version
we could use "x-amqp.content-type" instead. This gives a clear
indication that the content type will be set in the underlying AMQP
