Best JMS book I've read
I have used JMS for about 2.5 years before I bought this book.
There wasn't many books writing about JMS the first time I used JMS back in 2000.
This book has a solid coverage of JMS and give you advice in designing an enterprise application using JMS.
You can find samples of administration tasks for JMS Product from BEA Weblogic and iPlanet Message Queue.
The only thing that I missed is the coverage of IBM MQ, which is the messaging infrastructure that I use.
If you want to get a good understanding on designing JMS application, don't look further, buy this book, you won't regret your investment

Generally excellent, but not consistent.
I bought this as I needed a JMS reference that went beyond the spec and talked about design, deployment and management of JMS infrastructure. I was very impressed with everything I read until I dipped into Chapter 13 - specifically the four pages on improving client-side throughput through internal queueing. While this is an excellent idea, the example shows how to build a complicated and threading-heavy internal queue and dispatching mechanism and recommends that you use it to, er, put events onto the Swing event dispatcher's internal queue. Hmm.
The book (commendably) sets out to give a full picture of how to design, build, deploy, secure, and manage a JMS-based messaging architecture. This means, however, that it's very noticeable when a topic is skimmed over. For example, the section on bridging two different vendors' JMS implementations has two pages of simple code and less than one page of discussion that fails to consider administration, security, or performance, despite the normally good coverage of these areas elsewhere.
Nevertheless, I was mostly impressed with this book - it's just a pity that the high standards it sets itself aren't met consistently throughout the book. A second edition that discussed the example architectures in Part III in detail would be a truly excellent book, and would be relevant to all messaging products rather than just JMS.

A great JMS book!
This book gave me real world examples, concepts and gotchas related to JMS. I found it very useful for understanding how to implement JMS with my J2EE application. It explained JMS in a fluid style that was easy to read.
This book goes beyond theory and explains how to use JMS in different situations.
