No idea; I doubt they use openwire or stomp. Though you could use
StompConnect to talk to any JMS provider using Stomp.

But why would you wanna use JBoss Messaging and not ActiveMQ?

We support SSL; or you can plugin a custom message transformer to do
whatever you need.

Well J2EE 1.4 defines the JCA Resource Adapter specification so that
ActiveMQ works just great in any J2EE container including JBoss 4.x.

I'm not really aware of many valid reasons to choose JBoss Messaging
over ActiveMQ; the only one I can think of is you've already paid
RedHat for support?
