But is it ok to use it as VM if each application server is independent
of each other? But yes you are right that messages that are in one
application wouldn't be processed by other app servers if one of the
app servers go down? Would peer to peer using Embedded broker be
better? I am just trying to think why one is better over other.

I think one of the advantages could be that other applications could
publish/subscribe too.
