IBM has a JMS client that you can download and use with the Sun JVM. http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=0&uid=swg24012804

Instructions:

  • Download their file; then you have to run their "installer".
  • java -jar sibc_install-o0902.06.jar jms_jndi_sun <output_directory>
  • Get the following files from your <output_directory>

lib\sibc.jms.jar
lib\sibc.jndi.jar
lib\sibc.orb.jar

Create a LISA_PRE_CLASSPATH environment variable, to reference the above 3 jar files

E.G. LISA_PRE_CLASSPATH=C:\sibc.jms.jar;C:\sibc.jndi.jar;C:\sibc.orb.jar;

  • Edit local.properties and add the following line (this is the MAGIC setting):

com.ibm.CORBA.ORBInit=com.ibm.ws.sib.client.ORB

  • On the JMS step, use the following settings:

JNDI factory class: com.ibm.websphere.naming.WsnInitialContextFactory
JNDU URL: iiop://SERVER:PORT

Boom, it works.
