A JMS destination is used to configure the properties of a JMS destination for the associated generic JMS provider. Connections to the JMS destination are created by the associated JMS connection factory. A JMS destination for use with a generic JMS provider (not the internal WebSphere product JMS provider or MQSeries product JMS provider) has the following properties.

Name The name by which the queue is known for administrative purposes within IBM WAS.

Data type String

Description A description of the queue, for administrative purposes

JNDI Name The JNDI name of the actual (physical) name of the JMS destination bound into JNDI.

External JNDI Name The JNDI name that is used to bind the queue into the application server name space.

As a convention, use the fully qualified JNDI name; for example, in the form jms/Name, where Name is the logical name of the resource.

This name is used to link the platform binding information. The binding associates the resources defined by the deployment descriptor of the module to the actual (physical) resources bound into JNDI by the platform.

Data type String

Destination Type Whether this JMS destination is a queue (for point-to-point) or topic (for publishing and subscribing).

Select one of the following options...

Queue A JMS queue destination for point-to-point messaging.

Topic A JMS topic destination for pub/sub messaging.

Custom Properties Specifies name-value pairs for setting additional properties on the object that is created at run time for this resource.

You must enter a name that is a public property on the object and a value that can be converted from a string to the type required by the set method of the property. The acceptable properties and values depend on the object that is created. Refer to the object documentation for a list of valid properties and values.
