A

JMS (Java Message Service) is a standard extension to the Java platform that provides a common way for Java programs to create, send, receive and read an enterprise messaging systemís messages.

JMS is a set of interfaces and associated semantics that define how a JMS client accesses the facilities of an enterprise messaging product. Since messaging is peer-to-peer, all users of JMS are referred to generically as clients. A JMS application is made up of a set of application defined messages and a set of clients that exchange them.

The JMS API is based on the JMS specification as defined in "JSR: Java Message Service". The latest version of the specification was JMS 1.1 released on April 12, 2002.

Sun has provided several releases of the JMS implementation and named it as jms.jar:

JMS 1.1      30-Apr-2002   jms.jar (jms-1_1-fr-apidocs.zip)
JMS 1.0.2b   20-Jul-2001   jms.jar (jms-1_0_2b.zip)
