In 5.2 you could use Series to develop one Bessel function into a power 
series and integrate term by term after which you can recognize Sin[t]:
In[3]:=
Integrate[BesselJ[0, t - x]*Series[BesselJ[0, x],
{x, 0, 11}], {x, 0, t}]
Out[3]=
SeriesData[t, 0, {1, 0, -1/6, 0, 1/120, 0, -1/5040, 0,
1/362880, 0, -1/39916800}, 1, 13, 1]

Wolfgang
