Java™ Message Service API Tutorial and Reference provides a clear and complete introduction to the Java™ Message Service (JMS) API. This book illustrates how to use the JMS API to build applications that create, send, receive, and read messages. Beginning with comprehensive descriptions of fundamental JMS concepts and building blocks, the coverage extends to all aspects of running and creating JMS applications. Each topic area is supported by relevant and well-crafted JMS program examples that demonstrate how to put the technology to work.
The JMS API is an integral part of the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE™ platform). Developed by Sun Microsystems in close cooperation with enterprise messaging partners, JMS works together with other technologies to provide reliable, asynchronous communication between components in a distributed computing environment. It delivers a new, powerful tool for enterprise messaging--the cornerstone of today's enterprise applications.
You will find in-depth coverage on how to:
Create and run JMS client programs
Use the JMS API within the J2EE platform
Consume messages asynchronously with a message-driven bean
Produce messages from an application client and from a session bean
Access an entity bean from a message-driven bean
Create applications for the J2EE platform that use the JMS API to
Consume messages Produce messages Access an entity bean
From BytesMessage to TransactionRolledBackException, a useful alphabetical reference provides complete information on all facets of the JMS API.
Additionally, the tutorial example programs are downloadable from the Sun Web site, so that you can adapt them to implementations of the JMS API and the J2EE platform.
Written by an expert team, the book offers an unparalleled technical understanding of JMS and its integration into the J2EE platform. Its thorough and practical coverage of JMS makes it easy for developers working in a distributed Java technology environment, and those familiar with the J2EE platform, to efficiently integrate the JMS API.
