Does JBoss A-MQ support large messages? If so, how?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


We would like to send messages A-MQ that have Base64 encoded files in them; max message size with embedded file would be up to 10MB (although this could rise later on).

What would be your recommended way of using AMQ in this regard. I looked at BLOB Messages, but that seems to put the onus on the client of moving the files around using some other method than AMQ. Would streaming the messages be an option?
