WebSphere 5.1 to 6.1 Migration - JMS

I am currently migrating my j2ee project to work with Websphere v6.1 .We have a messaging framework which uses asynchronous messaging using JMS (MDB's ). Could someone tell me what I need to do to migrate this code to V6.1. I came across this information

You deploy EJB 2.1 message-driven beans against JCA 1.5-compliant resources, and configure the resources as deployment descriptor properties. Although you can continue to deploy an EJB 2.0 message-driven bean against a listener port (as in WebSphere Application Server Version 5), you are recommended to deploy such beans against JCA 1.5-compliant resources and to upgrade them to be EJB 2.1 message-driven beans.

1. I was wondering if I have to change any code to be complaint with JCA API ?.
2. If I no longer can have a embedded server in my IDE(RSA 7) , how do I go about configuring this locally ?
3. Are there any books which explains this clearly ? Could someone give me some information ?

1) What are you using now? If you are not using JCA, you will likely need to change something. (I think it's all configuration though.)
2) You launch the admin console and configure the real WebSphere server that comes with RSA 7. (You can set some things in the server editor, but they don't work the same way as the real server and can leak into your exported ear - including passwords.)
3) Have you checked the IBM redbook online yet?

I'm going to move this to our IBM/WebSphere forum since it's so WebSphere specific.

I agree. Here's the link:
