Like most things, it depends. If you need ACID properties for your
messages, using a database will be a lot easier than building your own
special-purpose ACID database. And you probably already have some
work invested in making your RDBMS scale, so it doesn't add a new
point of failure.
But sure, if you have the money for commercial IBM stuff, it works.
Some of the open source Java solutions may be viable too.
