Is there a way to set a Message's properties?

Also, I could not feagure what collationId means.

Don't know about the options to set Message's properties in MsmqJava.

But correlation ID allows one to give an "external id" to the MSMQ message. This can be useful if sending a request-message, and expect to get a reply-message, then by using the correlation ID it is possible to match the reply with the original request-message. It requires that the receiver of the request-message puts the correlation ID on the reply-message.

The typical way to use MsmqJava is this:

  try {
      String label="testmessage";
      String body= "....";
      byte[] correlationId = { 2,3,4,5,5,6,6,7,8,9,0}; // up to 20 bytes
      Message msg= new Message(body, label, correlationId);
  catch (MessageQueueException ex1) {
       System.out.println("Put failure: " + ex1.toString());
