I have the task of writing a program that must read messages sent from another program, process the message and send it back form where it came from. This is in a Unix environment.

Is there a way to read the Unix message queue using J2SE?

POSIX message queues? I don't know of any existing Java interface to this... I did find the jmqueues project on Java.net, but it doesn't look like anything is even there... If you need 2 Java programs to talk to one another, it would probably be a better idea to go with RMI. If you need to interface with an existing program that already uses POSIX message queues for IPC - you'd probably have to use JNI to wrap the POSIX libraries.
