[jms] jms service failure protection

Hi all,

I have two servers. The first server (A) checks the filesystem for new files. If a new file is found a (JMS) message should be send to the second server (B) to do some processing.

Both machines run JBoss 3.2.3 application server.

I just read the JMS tutorial from sun. And read the following:

The PERSISTENT delivery mode, which is the default, instructs the JMS provider to take extra care to ensure that a message is not lost in transit in case of a JMS provider failure. A message sent with this delivery mode is logged to stable storage when it is sent.

Does this mean that when server B (for whatever reason) is down, and server A tries to send a message to B the message is persisted and tried again later?

I have to be absolutely certain that all messages eventualy get to server B, regardless if server B was down for a period of time.

What would be your strategy on implementing this?
