Temporary Destinations

A temporary destination is one that exists only for the duration of the connection that created it.

Temporary destinations are created with the session method createTemporaryQueue or createTemporaryTopic (see Working With Sessions below): for example,

TemporaryQueue  tempQueue = mySession.createTemporaryQueue();

Although the temporary destination is created by a particular session, its scope is actually the entire connection to which that session belongs. Any of the connection’s sessions (not just the one that created the temporary destination) can create a message consumer for the destination and receive messages from it. The temporary destination is automatically deleted when its connection is closed, or you can delete it explicitly by calling its delete method:
