ESB: ActiveMQ : Queue's Message count


I am using Talend ESB enterprise edition. 


My requirement is to peek into a queue (ActiveMQ) to know if the queue is empty. I want to take some action based on if the queue is empty.

1. Is there a way to get Queue's message count with in a Route? this talks about ActiveMQ plugin for Hyperic. But I do not understand if that helps in getting the message count with in a Route. If so, what ESB component can help me read the message count?


2. Can I have a ActiveMQ consumer that can just peek the message, but not removing it from the queue?

Re: ESB: ActiveMQ : Queue's Message count

not sure how it could work in route, but generally You can use REST interface of ActiveMQ for request many information




return You:

    "mbean": "org.apache.activemq:brokerName=localhost,destinationName=TEST,destinationType=Queue,type=Broker",
    "type": "read"

JOSN, where QueueSize - it is exactly what are You looking for
of course You need add authorisation parameters - basic HTTP authorisation
