Hi,
Hope I am not confusing in the subject line.
I think WAS 5.x comes with a "Built-in Websphere JMS provider" (I think same what we call embedded messaging). How good (or should I say reliable) is this messaging support for production environment. Would it be a bad idea to use the embedded messaging for a production environment which is not very complex..lets say a it has one MDB.
Thanks is advance for your answers.

It is quite reliable. The only thing you don't get with Embedded messaging is clustering of the messaging server. So, if the box that hosts your queue goes down, then the application breaks, even if the application continues to run on other boxes in the WebSphere cluster.
If you need clustering of your queues, you need to use WebSphere MQ (a different product).

Thanks Kyle for the response.
I agree with you on limitations of using the embedded messaging as oppose to a full blown MOM like MQSeries.
My though is that if the environment is very simple with no server clustering and not much of traffic then we should be fine using the integrated support for JMS instead of investing in another product.
