Qpid Jms has a connection property to Enable/Disable LocalMessageExpiry. The nms amqp provider should support this property as some amqp brokers do not support LocalMessageExpiry at the protocol level over amqp.
This property should be added to the NmsConnectionFactory, along with the ConnectionInfo Class and the ConsumerInfo Class and applied at consumer message receive.
The default value in qpid jms is true to have the nms amqp provider should have the same default.
The string name of the property will be "nms.localMessagePriority".
