Actually it sounds to me like a classic anti-pattern -- what we call "pseudo-synchronous" JMS. Basically, you build a function-call layer on top of JMS -- a horrible idea. First of all, you can't enlist a call like this in an EJB transaction (because the send would never occur because it would wait forever on the receive before committing the transaction). Second, this totally subverts the asynchronous nature of JMS.
Use synchronous protocols (like RMI-IIOP) for function calls and leave JMS for asynchronous programming...
