At present messenger only sets the address of the source for receiving 
links and of the target for sending links. For sending/receiving to an 
existing queue or to a fanout exchange, this is all you need (just 
specify the queue or exchange name as the path in the url of the address 
used, e.g. amqp:// or amqp:// 
That gives you the basic queue and topic patterns of JMS.

Binding a subscription to the headers exchange (or indeed  even to topic 
or direct exchanges) with both qpid brokers requires using the 'legacy 
amqp' filters registered as extensions for 1.0. Likewise if specifying a 
jms selector. At present there is no way to set a filter on a source 
when using messenger however.

To migrate from using the headers exchange to using a selector while 
retaining the qpid::messaging API should be fairly straightforward. You 
just need to specify a 'selector' option in the link properties for your 
address, and use e.g. a fanout exchange instead.

e.g. drain -f "amq.fanout; {link:{selector:\"colour IN ('red', 'blue')\"}}"

      spout amq.fanout -P colour=red
      spout amq.fanout -P colour=yellow


That gives you the same functionality as the headers exchange in (I 
think) a much simpler syntax, and works for both 1.0 (where it uses the 
registered jms filters extension) or 0-10 (or mixtures of the two).

You can use another exchange type as well of course, with additional 
filtering on subject distinct from the selector.
