Subject Re: network of Brokers

Network of brokers ensure that ur messaging topology doesnt have a single
point of failure and distributes load across the network of brokers. 
If there is only a single broker and for some reason that broker goes down
then ur clients (producers/consumers) will not be able to send/receive new
msgs at all.
Further, ur producer can produce to one broker and consumers can consume
same msgs from another broker transparently (Store and Forward network of
brokers).  So ur Queues/Topics are distributed across brokers.

I use Network of brokers with static, discovery URIs.

Hope this helps.
