21.2. Clustered destinations

JBoss Messaging clusters JMS queues and topics transparently across the cluster. Messages sent to a distributed queue or topic on one node are consumable on other nodes. To designate that a particular destination is clustered simply set the clustered attribute in the destination deployment descriptor to true.

JBoss Messaging balances messages between nodes, catering for faster or slower consumers to efficiently balance processing load across the cluster.

If you do not want message redistribution between nodes, but still want to retain the other characteristics of clustered destinations, you can specify the attribute ClusterPullConnectionFactoryName on the server peer.
