Additional question. How does one install this in 4.2.3 ? Is it simply (he asks hopefully) a matter of replacing the jars in the library?
Is there any instruction for doing it that someone can point at?
What should I be using?
I always recommend using the latest combination of Remoting and JBossMessaging jars, because we've fixed quite a few issues over time. The 2.2.2.x generation of Remoting releases evolved into the 2.2.3 releases, the newest of which is 2.2.3.SP1. Actually, version 2.2.3.SP2 is tagged, but I haven't uploaded it to the download site yet. I believe the appropriate version of JBossMessaging is 1.4.0.SP3_CP10, but I don't see it on the JBM download page. Of course, the beauty of open source is that you can build the jars yourself.

It is indeed. The server uses jboss-remoting.jar from the $JBOSS_HOME/server/$CONFIG/lib. Also, the jars in the $JBOSS_HOME/client directory are intended for use by clients, so you should update jboss-remoting.jar in that directory as well.
found the jar, looked in the Manifest
jboss-remoting.jar has the property that if you type
java -jar jboss-remoting.jar
it will print the version.
