I'm trying to figure out how I'd communicate between a server running JBoss 2.4.4 and a system not running a JMS server.
Is this possible? I've tried this using the J2EE server (in the JMS tutorial on the Sun site) but I don't seem to be able to find any documentation on this for JBoss.
Yes, you can. Read the JMS chapter of the JBoss Manual. It's all in how you the InitialContext is initialized.
