Exception Condition

You can use a message label for several purposes. For example, you can use it for display purposes or to selectively process messages based on the label value. The label does not need to be unique across messages.

Message queue and message labels represent an application-defined value that can help identify the queue or message in human-readable terms. It is the responsibility of the application to interpret the label contents, which have no intrinsic meaning to the Message Queuing application.
