Network Computing Using JMS
A lucid and authoritative description of Java Message
Service, from Sun Microsystems, which developed and
owns it. JMS is designed for an environment of
distributed computers, where applications need to
communicate with each other and databases across the
network. You can think of JMS as one of the enablers
of Sun's longtime slogan "The Network IS The
JMS is loosely coupled distributed networking, where
the sender and receiver do not have to be running at
the same time. Plus they do not need to know each
other's methods, quite unlike RMI [a tightly coupled
technology]. This makes for potentially much greater
flexibility in network computing.
The book emphasises this, with detailed examples of
source code showing how to use JMS with Enterprise
Java Beans, another technology invented by Sun. You
can see how to hook JMS to a session bean or an entity
bean, and how to combine JMS with several Message
Driven Beans. The text is clearly written, with
attention paid to how you can run the examples under
Microsoft Windows or Unix.
The book also suggests two sequels. It describes using JMS with J2EE, the Java Enterprise Edition, which is the full Java environment. But in a world of PDAs, cell phones and other mobile gadgets, what would be interesting is a description of JMS running under a slimmed down Java environment, like kvm, and how this would scale with the number of devices. A second sequel might be a comparison of JMS with JXTA, another Sun technology for mobile computing. Who know? Perhaps Sun is already working on this!
If you are programming in a distributed computing
environment, consider using JMS as an enabling
technology, and this book as its indispensible guide.
