Sure they can. Messages stays on the broker where they are produced
until consumer arrives, when they are delivered to it.

cannot be provided by a network of brokers .

on the participating nodes as far as they're involved. Clients can connect to any of the nodes
to produce messages. The same applies for consumption, since messages are forwarded to one
of the nodes that has a subscriber for a particular destination.

if you really need multiple brokers, since the main reason for a NWOB would be to scale horizontally
(for queues) or to distribute destinations over multiple networks. Unless you really have
significant traffic, one node can handle quite a lot of queue messages (several k/s, depending
on infrastructure and persistence).

>> Hello there, all i want ot ask is there there is a specific setup of activemq brokers
such that we will have multiple brokers in our network that can serve clients that are producing
(just producing) messages for one ( just one) queue. As far as i can see , there is no way
to achieve that. Am I right? Any ideas? :)
