I have recently installed glassfish 2.1.1, which also comes with OpenMQ 4.4 .
But how do I find out what is the update number of OpenMQ ?
Currenlty, it shows me following
com.sun.messaging.jmq Version Information
Product Compatibility Version: 4.4
Protocol Version: 4.4
Target JMS API Version: 1.1
I want to find out if bug http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6961586 has been fixed in this version or not. I still see the same behavior as OpenMQ 4.3.
According to the bug, it is fixed in OpenMQ 4.4u2p1(b01)
Bug ID: 6961586

Can I just install OpenMQ 4.5 and integrate it with glassfish 2.1.1 ?
Migrating to glassfish 3 is not possible at this time, as the application is in production, and I have installation scripts that use installation file to do silent installation, as weil as scripts to auto create node-agents, and do a lot of other customization.
All that is not possible to change in this timeline.
Can you reproduce your problem in an isolated environment (i.e. not in production)?
You could try manually upgrading 2.1.1 to use 4.5 (by replacing the files in imq/bin and imq/lib with the ones in 4.5, and unzipping the 4.5 version of imqjmsra.rar into lib/install/applications/jmsra) but this isn't tested or supported and I would advise against doing in production. However if you can reproduce your problem in an isolated environment it would probably allow you to confirm whether or not the bug is fixed in that version.
Since this is not a supported procedure I can't point you at you at detailed documentation and don't want to get drawn into writing any. But basically you need to
replace the files in imq/bin (under your GlassFish 2.1.1 installation) with the ones in mq/bin (under your GlassFish 3.1 installation)
replace the files in imq/lib (under your GlassFish 2.1.1 installation) with the ones in mq/bin (under your GlassFish 3.1 installation)
unjar imqjmsra.rar (which is in mq/bin under your 3.1 installation) into lib/install/applications/jmsra (under your GlassFish 2.1.1 installation), thereby replacing the files already there.
