Hi Eric,

Acknowledgements are handled  inside Sandesha2 and they are not delivered to
the client.  Sandesha2 will retransmit messages until  a ack is received or
till the message sequence times out.

A couple of thoughts came up:

After you your messages get successfully delivered the the server and after
the Sandesha2 client receive acknowledgements you should hv those message
numbers in the outgoing sequence report. Dont you see these values? What are
the velues of the other properties of the Sequence Report (for e.g. Sequece

This will not help ur scenario. You can only use this to know when your
sequence times out.

3. SandeshaClient.waitUntilSequenceCompleted works but who wants to

yes. This will only help if blocking is ok.

None of these fullfill the basic requirement: within a reasonable

My sugestion for you for now is to use the sequence report. May be from a
seperate thread. But a better way will be to have a method in the
SandeshaClient to notify the client when a specific message get successfully
delivered. I'll mark this as a improvement :-)
