Credit where it is due:
This and other helpful WebLogic administration / monitoring tips can be found in
the great WebLogic Server 12c Distinctive Recipes book by Frank Munz.

jolokia
Jolokia is a great open source tool that provides, amongst other things, a RESTful interface to MBeans in JEE Containers. My specific need is WebLogic queue monitoring and jolokia is great for this. I have the following:

JMS Server: jms-server-1
JMS Module: jms-module-1
WebLogic Server: AdminServer (not recommended for production)
JMS Queue: indexQueue

By installing jolokia as a war (dropping the war file in autodeploy directory if running in development mode) I can get information about my queue by navigating to the following url:

http://localhost:7001/jolokia-war-1.2.1/read/com.bea:JMSServerRuntime=jms-server-1,Name=jms-module-1!!indexQueue,ServerRuntime=AdminServer,Type=JMSDestinationRuntime/MessagesCurrentCount,MessagesHighCount,MessagesReceivedCount

Sample JSON Output:

{
   "timestamp":1399478460,
   "status":200,
   "request":{
      "mbean":"com.bea:JMSServerRuntime=jms-server-1,Name=jms-module-1!indexQueue,ServerRuntime=AdminServer,Type=JMSDestinationRuntime",
      "attribute":[
         "MessagesCurrentCount",
         "MessagesHighCount",
         "MessagesReceivedCount"
      ],
      "type":"read"
   },
   "value":{
      "MessagesHighCount":0,
      "MessagesCurrentCount":0,
      "MessagesReceivedCount":0
   }
}
