So you could just start and stop individual consumers and bind each
consumer to your POJOS; letting the JMS provider do your filtering for
you. The only downside is if you need to change your selector, you
need to stop/restart your consumer. This stopping/starting of
consumers can be a bit tricky with topics (as you can miss messages) -
but is no biggie with queues.

Another approach is to consume all messages on the queue you want to
dispatch then use some kinda Content Based Router in your consumer to
dispatch it to all interested objects...
