Really? I thought it was just attaching to a (possibly durable) consumer?

In which you'd create an adapter using the RabbitMQ JMS client that would consumer the messages from the RabbitMQ server and get them into to a usable format for your MDB's.

I see what you mean. I've not had to dig into JBoss enough to know whether this is really the case, but if it is necessary to provide a Resource Adapter in order to bind to a JMS compliant messaging component in order to use MDBs in JBoss, then that's probably something that the person wanting to use MDBs in JBoss will need to do.

+1, IMHO.

I really wasn't aware of the requirement to build a custom Resource Adapter though - I though the MDB implementation(s) provided that OOTB for any compliant JMS interface.
