Browse, read, and remove a message from a queue using IBM MQ classes

Tags: , ,



I’m writing a simple Java application using MQ classes for Java with Eclipse.

Right now I’m able to browse a remote queue without removing the messages stored.
Here is the code of the reading cycle:

MQQueueManager QMgr = new MQQueueManager(qManager); //<-- qManager is a String with the QMgr name

int openOptions = MQC.MQOO_FAIL_IF_QUIESCING | MQC.MQOO_INPUT_SHARED | MQC.MQOO_BROWSE;  

MQQueue queue = QMgr.accessQueue(queueName, openOptions);

MQMessage theMessage    = new MQMessage();
MQGetMessageOptions gmo = new MQGetMessageOptions();
    gmo.options=MQC.MQGMO_WAIT | MQC.MQGMO_BROWSE_FIRST;
    gmo.matchOptions=MQC.MQMO_NONE;
    gmo.waitInterval=5000;

boolean thereAreMessages=true;
while(thereAreMessages){
    try{
        //read the message          
        queue.get(theMessage,gmo);  
        //print the text            
        String msgText = theMessage.readString(theMessage.getMessageLength());
        System.out.println("msg text: "+msgText);

                 // <--- Solution code Here

        //move cursor to the next message               
        gmo.options = MQC.MQGMO_WAIT | MQC.MQGMO_BROWSE_NEXT;

    }catch(MQException e){

        if(e.reasonCode == e.MQRC_NO_MSG_AVAILABLE) {
            System.out.println("no more message available or retrived");
        }

        thereAreMessages=false;
    } catch (IOException e) {
        System.out.println("ERROR: "+e.getMessage());
    }
}

Main question: After the read message line and before moving the cursor to the next message how can I remove the message from the queue?

Secondary question: Eclispe is warning me that all the costants used for the options are deprecated; which are the correct ones to use?


Solution:

Here the solution I’m really looking for:

// set te cursor to remove the message from the queue
gmo.options = CMQC.MQGMO_MSG_UNDER_CURSOR;
queue.get(theMessage, gmo);

these lines have to be inserted in the question code
