JMS will be simpler, and have the added benefit that you'll be able to use your code on any jms provider if you ever wanted to. The only downside to this that I can see is that the jms spec omits a method for getting the depth of a queue, which can be useful, whereas with MQ you can get the depth.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
