Hi Vadiraj,

Please keep the mailing cc-ed in, as this provides a record of answers for users later on to look at. For example, I answered a very similar question to this one yesterday on the mailing list: http://lists.rabbitmq.com/pipermail/rabbitmq-discuss/2012-July/020968.html.

Now I'm not really 100% clear what your question is anymore. You asked about setting x-message-ttl, which is an argument to queue declare. I'm assuming that your description below (viz "C++ consumer consumes that message..." etc) is of what you want to eventually happen. Look at the link above to my previous answer to what is essentially the same question. TTL will be applied by the broker, so the clients simply need to coordinate themselves around the right queues and/or exchanges.

Oh and by the way, please feel free to call me Tim! ;)
