Ah, ok, then I think you could do it this way:

A Component 1 sends a message request/reply to a specific channel, we'll
call it channel A.  At this point JMSReplyTo is Component 1's temp queue.

Component 2 is listening to Channel A.  With each incoming message you start
a new thread, format the message for the external system and send.  This
thread then polls the outbound external queue until it sees it's message (by
correlation id) at which point it pulls it off, reformats it and sends it
back to Component 1 via the JMSReplyTo.

Something like ServiceMix might well help you here in that you might not
have to write the threading.  You just specify that you have n instances of
Component 2 listening on Channel A and it takes care of their lifecycles.
(Component 2 of course would need to be thread-safe in itself, but that
shouldn't be an issue here.)
