Sun Java System Messaging Server 6 2005Q4 MTA Developer's Reference


Intermediate processing channels often need to copy verbatim a message from a channel queue to a new message being enqueued. That is, intermediate processing channels often re-enqueue an existing, queued message. This verbatim copy can be accomplished with mtaEnqueueCopyMessage(). Using this routine is significantly faster than using mtaDequeueLineNext() and mtaEnqueueWriteLine() in a read and write loop.

When mtaEnqueueCopyMessage() is called, the copy begins at the current read point of the queued message file associated with the supplied dequeue context, dq_ctx. The message file from that point to its end is copied to the new message being enqueued. To start at the beginning of the queued message (that is, to start at the beginning of its outermost header), specify a value of 1 for the rewind call argument. So doing is equivalent to first calling mtaDequeueRewind() before mtaEnqueueCopyMessage().
