Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 Deployment Planning Guide

Remote Java Message Service

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

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