could anyone give me a detailed example or point me to a link that describes a good use of JMS in general,
and more particularly of JMS and Websphere as the application server ?

I am trying to find out what a good use of JMS is, in which context it should be employed or not etc

The examples I have found do basic things such as writing to the log files when a message arrives in the queue, which is often useless.

You use JMS whenever you use asynchronicity. One good example of this is when you have to perform processing that will last longer than a servlet can reasonably perform (e.g. this Javaranch Journal article). JMS is often also used as a communication medium to back-end processing (e.g. CICS transactions) through a messaging middleware like IBM's MQSeries or TIBCO. It basically comes down to -- is there a need in your application to do something asynchronously rather than synchronously.
