I have seen one controller use GET_LAST_MESSAGE and another use ADVISORY. So far both work, only because my proxy does not check and returns the message in its cue if there is one.


I have the same conundrum - I have a controller that uses GET_LAST_MESSAGE as the very first request to a GET:QM.

But my responder has NO previous message to return, so returns an empty STATUS_MESSAGE, since it cannot NACK the request as ACTION NOT SUPPORTED.

By my reading the standard requires a Controller to use STATUS_TYPE of

I think we are now all agreed this SHOULD have been STATUS_TYPE on None, but it sadly wasn't.

Can we agrree that the use of STATUS_TYPE of GET_LAST_MESSAGE should ONLY be used for a retry/recovery situation and not for regular GET:QM requests ?
