Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server v2.1.1 High Availability Administration Guide

REMOTE Java Message Service

When the Type attribute is REMOTE, the MQ broker must be started separately. For information about starting the broker, see the Sun GlassFish Message Queue Administration Guide.

In this case, Enterprise Server will use an externally configured broker or broker cluster. Also, 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.
