Indeed it does. For the most part, Java classes can be used just like 
regular Python classes.

What I meant is that JMS messages can contain just about ANYTHING. 
Serialized Java classes, XML, plain text, etc ... Of course, if a 
regular Java program cna generate/interptet the contents, A python+Jpype 
program will be able to do it too. Again, with the same caveat that 
JPype does not (yet) support subclassing Java classes in python.
