JMS & ActiveMQ

I'm new to JMS, And i want to run a simple application using JMS,
for which i have written two files.

1) &
2), gets two command line arguments one is queueName and the other is number of messages to send. which is int, so the simple queue sender the static messages to the queueName.

and SimpleQueueReceiver receives the messages. from that queue, SimpleQueueReceiver also gets one command line argument that is queueName from which to receive messages.

I want to use Tomcat 5.5 as a web container and ActiveMQ as my message broker.

but think is a simple application which contains a java file with public static void main method, so i don't think i will need a tomcat in my case. correct me if i am wrong.

Now i would like to know how does ActiveMQ comes in picture ???

What else i need to do to run my application ???

Do i need J2EE Application Server ?
(Currently it is installed because following import

import javax.jms.*;
import javax.naming.*;

which are required for JMS i got from j2ee.jar which i got from J2EE Application Server.

Thanks & Regards,
