The network here is not reliable.  But it is also a small capacity. And 
the confioguration is : one center sending messages to several (between 
20 and 40) local systems.
That is why reliable multicast seems to be the best idea, don't you think?

Could there be alternatives to JGroups to create a network of brokers 
with reliable multicast? Is JRMS a valid option?
Or will we have to use tcp instead of multicast? 
Or will we have to downgrade to ActiveMQ 3.x?

For the moment I would like to take a crack at gettoing it work - but 
this I will do it on my free time, which is not much :-), so I can not 
engage my word on taht but.. why not ? If you tell me where ar ethe 
source, i'll try (but I don't know when).
