Re: How to do a divert using an xpath filter?

XPath support is not documented anywhere that I know of - probably because
it was never implemented.  Implementing such support would be a feature

At the moment, filters only work on the message headers/properties.

If you want to filter with XPath on the body of the message your only
option would be to provide an implementation of the method I noted
previously.  I said previously that it didn't appear difficult to
implement.  However, there is a key difficulty - decoding the message body
(which is just a byte array) into a string.  The client could have encoded
the string any number of different ways, but the broker doesn't know how
the client encoded the string so it can't reliable decode the string.
That's probably why this wasn't implemented in the first place.
