You can browse queues using the queue browser - you can also browse
supplying a selector to filter it.

It depends on your requirements really. Message brokers are designed
to support selectors on topics/queues and queue browsing. However
selectors are quite simple; they only work on headers on the message.
If you want complex queries - or content based queries and you don't
want to work in a stream based manner like messaging but want a
repository/database of data to process/update/filter on demand
whenever, then sure use a database.
