As far as I remember, yes.

I started trying Joram because I've been using Jonas as AS but I
discarded it because the High Availability of Joram/Jonas was so
"naif" and not usefull for me.

After this I decided to test ActiveMQ and I remember I did a test as follows:

Two JBoss server with one master broker and a slave broker (working
with topics). Each master server connecting to a network of brokers
with static ip's and failover (I can't use multicast) and many clients
subscribed to topis with a failover url pointing (ordered, not random)
to first JBoss server master broker, first JBoss server slave broker,
second JBoss server master broker, second JBoss server slave broker.

I remember I did a test like this:

1 - start all brokers
2 - start a subscriber
3 - send a message
4 - stop first master broker
5 - send a message
6 - stop slave broker
7 - send a message

and it worked find.
I guess I did more tests in this way and it worked so I thought
network of brokers worked and continue with my development.

Nevertheless, I asked more than once for recommendation about how to
set a network of brokers and nobody answered me...

I hope to hear soon somebody from ActiveMQ project with the truth
about this matter. If this is not working I think we deserve to know
it NOW.
