Thanks for your answer !
We may be using it in a wrong way but so far, the method getMessageCount() always displays 0 message, when "rabbitmqctl list_queues" displays 8 messages or keeps growing.
DeclareOk declareOk = channel.queueDeclare();System.out.println(">>>> MESSAGES : " + declareOk.getMessageCount());

A queue.declare_ok frame includes the number of messages on the queue; so, you could send a passive queue.declare, and examine the response.
