For deleting messages, type the below command:

wls:/lab_domain/serverRuntime/JMSRuntime/AdminServer.jms/JMSServers/FEJMSServer/Destinations/FRModule!FRQ> cmo.deleteMessages(“JMSMessageID IN(‘ID:<840637.1277114817339.0>’)”)
Results will be:
It will delete a message having id ID:<840637.1277114817339.0>


  1. Can you throw some WLST script for Moving the messages from one JMS queue to other?

    1. Hi,

      In place of cmo.deleteMessages, please use the below syntax to move the messages from one queue to another:

      cmo.moveMessages(‘JMSMessageID LIKE \’ ID:\’’, target)

      Let me know if it works.

      Best Regards,
