Subject Re: IBM MQSeries user seeking advice on ActiveMQ usage

Hi Ken,

One option is to deploy your producer on Server A with an 'embedded' broker.
Thus, if for whatever reason your network goes down, the producer can still
use the services of its embedded broker. You would also configure the Server
A broker with a networkConnector to establish a forwarding bridge between
itself and the broker on Server B. The Server B broker would need a
transportConnector to listen for and accept connection requests from the
Server A broker. The Server A broker will forward all messages to the 
Server B broker; provided the network is up, Server B broker has an
appropriate consumer, and there are no consumers on Server A.
