    can order of messages be guaranteed with only one consumer?

      Hello, I'm considering modifying my application to repair a potential bug but first need to ensure I don't end up with a datarace due to messages coming out of order.

      My application only makes minor use of JMS. It has a parent monitoring a dozen children applications. They communicate via a single topic provided by a filestore. properties are used to distinguish if a message is going to parent or child, and to designate which child a message is sent to/from. For my application to work correctly I need to ensure that the parent reads the messages from one child in order. I don't care what order different children’s messages are read or what order the children process messages sent to them.

      will the order of the children messages be guaranteed here, or can they still come out of order?
