Java Messaging Service 

A part of Java Enterprise Edition, JMS (Java Message Service) is used to create, send, receive and read messages between two or more clients. The communication is loosely coupled, reliable and asynchronous. A JMS application consists of a JMS provider, JMS clients, Message objects used in communication, and Administered Objects created by administrators for the use of clients.

JMS Message consists of following main parts:

  • JMS provider is a messaging system that implements the JMS interfaces and provides administrative and control features. An implementation of the J2EE platform at release 1.3 includes a JMS provider.

  • JMS clients are the programs or components, written in the JavaTM programming language, that produce and consume messages.

  • Messages are the objects that communicate information between JMS clients.

  • Administered objects are preconfigured JMS objects created by an administrator for the use of clients. The two kinds of administered objects are destinations and connection factories, which are described in Section 3.1, "Administered Objects."

  • Native clients are programs that use a messaging product's native client API instead of the JMS API. An application first created before the JMS API became available and subsequently modified is likely to include both JMS and native clients.
