Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.1 2005Q2 High Availability Administration Guide

REMOTE Java Message Service

When the Type attribute is REMOTE, the MQ broker must be started separately. This is the default if clusters are defined in the Application Server. For information about starting the broker, see the Sun Java System Message Queue Administration Guide.

In this case, Application Server will use an externally configured broker or broker cluster. Also, you must start and stop MQ brokers separately from Application Server, and use MQ tools to configure and tune the broker or broker cluster. REMOTE type is most suitable for Application Server clusters.

With REMOTE type, you must specify MQ broker startup parameters using MQ tools. The Start Arguments attribute is ignored.
