Ryan - A JMS 1.0.2b implementation ships with WebSphere MQ 5.3, although I believe it isn't installed by default. This was updated to JMS 1.1 in CSD6. For information about how to use it, I would look at the MQSeries "Using Java"
book. This can be found at

Hope this helps,

You might want to start with the Embedded Messaging in WSAD 5.1.x. That way you can write some simple JMS point to point or pub/sub applications.

I would also be good to experiment with the JMSAdmin tool that comes with MQ. It is one way you can bind objects (QueueConnectionFactories, Topics, etc) in the JNDI namespace.

Look at these:

I agree. Here's the link:
