JMS Clustering

How is JMS Clustered to prevent failover. If I have say three weblogic servers up and running for load balancing and failover.
Should I attach the one message queue to all three, and send each meassge to all three.
I know with EJBs you use the global JNDI tree, and Each server has access to global session, so if one server goes down another can take over that session.
But I cannot find any info on how JMS handles cluster issues.
Thanks for any help Tony

First off, this post should really be moved to the WebLogic Forum.
Secondly, what version of WebLogic are you using? JMS is not truely clusterable in any version of WebLogic, but WLS 7.0 provides much better features in this area. Read this as WebLogic JMS does not support automatic fail-over.
Check this link for more information: How JMS Clustering Works.

Thanks Chris, apoligies for posting in the wrong forum, I was thinking more of JMS than Weblogic.
Thanks for the link it helped.
Cheers Tony
