A JMS bridge
destination instance defines the actual source and target jms bridge
destinations within the WebLogic domain.
You need to configure
a JMS bridge destination instance for each actual source and target
destination to be mapped to a messaging bridge instance. Therefore, when
you finish defining attributes for a source JMS bridge destination,
repeat these steps to configure a target JMS bridge destination, or vice

destination name to 81to90SourceDestination. Then
when you create the corresponding target destination, you could
name it as 81to90TargetDestination.
Note: Once you create a JMS bridge destination, you
cannot rename it. Instead, you must delete it and create another
one that uses the new name.

communicate with the bridge destinations. For more information on
which adapter name to enter, see Resource Adapters.
Classpath -- Leave this field blank when connecting to
source and target destinations that are both running on WebLogic
Server 6.1 or later. When connecting to either a source or target
destination that is running on WebLogic Server 6.0 or earlier, the
Adapter Classpath field must indicate the location of the classes
for the earlier WebLogic Server release. When connecting to a
third-party JMS provider, the bridge destination must supply the
