The reason I've been suggesting splitting the file up is precisely so
that you can commit/acknowledge the message in chunks - rather than
deferring until you've got all of the messages. If you must defer
until you have all of the messages then using BytesMessage or the JMS
streams will have the same effect - the broker will need to keep them
all around in RAM until you commit/ack.

We have compression on messages which you can enable which effectively
turn all messages into zips to compress things down. Though how much
compression are you gonna get on 200Mb?

To enable compression see the useCompression option...
