How to access internal id of a Message in qpid broker?

Solution Verified - Updated -


Are there any ways to access internal id of a Message to be used with, let's say, third party qpid binding to invoke methods in qpid-cpp-client:

Session::acknowledge(Message&, boolean);
Session::acknowledgeUpTo(Message&, boolean);

These are required for implementing a qpid binding for Erlang programming language where the following use case seems to require the message ID:

  • The user would like to create a subscription to a queue
  • The user has specified that receiver capacity is 100
  • There are more than 100 messages on the broker, so the broker pushes 100 messages to the client
  • Then these messages should be processed and acknowledged sequentially.

The messages are received on the C++ side and then they are passed one by one to the erlang side, so acknowledgement is initiated on the erlang side. Erlang has to uniquely identify a message to acknowledge, ideally using the internal message ID.
