wasnt sure where to post this, since it involves moth messaging and wireless (J2ME) aspects...
Im currently in need of a messaging solution for a J2ME application(not yet built) running on Windows CE. We have got softwired ibusmobile working, and from what i understand its a wrapper for JMS.
we need the ability to send text and binary(image) messages to a server from a PDA. Ive done this using a JMS works great.
now my concern is do we really need to find a JMS solution for wireless platforms -or- start looking at the new Wireless Messaging API (WMA).

Wireless JMS (ibusmobile or IBM MQ) provides application level message support.
WMA provides transport level support for SMS/MMS.
Those two are independent from each other. For example, you can use WMA/SMS to send messages to a queue maintained on a wireless JMS server.
