Hi All,
Does WebSphere 5.0 support JMS Server clustering? i.e if the node in which JMS Server is running goes down will a JMS Server in other node take over?
If it supports JMS Clustering, then do we have to create the JMS resources for each JMS Server? If not to which server do we have to point it to?
Thanks,
Suttan

The built-in JMS messaging (as I understand it) does not support clustering. If you need clustering you must install/use WebSphere MQ.

From my previous investigation, even MQ doens't support that transparent failover feature you need.
It is true also in WLS 7.1/8.0.

Hi Kyle and Simon,
Thanks a lot.
The Appserver which support JMS clustering is WL 7.1/8.0 as mentioned by Simon and also Pramati.
Thanks again,

Simon, I don't understand. This is exactly what WebSphere MQ Clustering supports -- the ability to take a single MQ Queue Manager and spread it across multiple machines. Now, I'll grant that this will not work for topics unless you use the Pub/Sub support that comes with WebSphere MQSi... However, for queues it should work fine.
What were you told (and by whom) that led you to believe any different?
