This feature is new for the SPARC platform in the Solaris 9 12/02 release. In the Solaris 9 8/03 release, this feature is also available for the x86 platform.
The Solaris software now supports Java Messaging Service (JMS) applications. This Solaris release uses Sun ONE Message Queue (formerly iPlanet Message Queue for Java) as a JMS provider.
JMS messaging enables applications and application components to exchange messages asynchronously and reliably. Processes that run on different platforms and different operating systems can connect to a common message service to exchange information.
Sun ONE Message Queue, Platform Edition provides a full implementation of the JMS specification. The message queue provides additional features such as the following:
Support for the Java Naming and Directory InterfaceTM (JNDI)
Support for Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) messaging
For further information, see the Sun ONE Message Queue 3.0.1 Administrator's Guide and the Sun ONE Message Queue 3.0.1 Developer's Guide. For information about Sun ONE Message Queue editions and features, see also the following Web site:
