e.g. Jencks will create more sessions & POJOs to deal with largef
message volume. You also have fine grained control over concurrency
(e.g. how many concurrent messages do you want to process for each
subscription) and can share thread pools across different

Plus there's the transaction handling, XA and retry logic.

But if you are happy with a simplistic threading & pooling strategy,
don't need XA and are happy to write your own transaction handling and
retry code, by all means just use pure JMS yourself.
