Can someone tell me how I use JMS and why I should use JMS (for which problems?)?
I know that JMS is for asynchronous communication and that they're two different ways (P2P and Pub/Sub) but I don't know exactly why I need it.
Thanks a lot

Use it when you need asynchronous communications .
Some practical uses would be like on a web server where you need to do a long-running task (something that would cause the user's browser to time out). Hand the request over to a background processor through JMS. You might also want to batch transactions or work requests. Things like that.
