This is not supported in 1.0.x, however it is supported in 1.2:
<attribute access="read-only" getMethod="getConsumerCount"> <description>The number of consumers on the queue</description> <name>ConsumerCount</name> <type>int</type> </attribute>
That is very bad news for me. Any idea why it was left out?
Not sure what you mean by "left out".
AFAI remember, it has been scheduled on the 1.2 release for a long time.
You may as well ask why clustering or message bridge was "left out" out of 1.0 too.
If we put everything in the 1.0 release then
a) We would probably never release 1.0 since there would be too much to do
b) We would never have to release another release after that since everything would be in 1.0 :)
BTW If you want to implement this on 1.0, be my guest.
It would be pretty trivial to do.
Just look how it was done on 1.2 and port it back. I shouldn't take more than 30 mins.
