Is there a difference between the term used JMS destination and queue/topic or are they the same terms which can be used interchangably? I know what's a queue and topic.

A queue is a point-to-point channel and therefore can have n senders and only one receiver (from a single message point of view) : that means that a message could be consumed by only one receiver.

A topic is a publish-subscriber channel and therefore can have n senders and n receivers. That means tat a single message could be consumed by n receivers.

Regards
