I am really new to JMS. I am interested in learning the java messaging and have installed the "Sun Java System Message Queue 3 2005Q1, English" for windows platform. I dont have an application server running. I have a tomcat 5.5.12. Is this sufficient for JMS to work or do I need an application server too.

Also, is there a java ranch page for JMS FAQ.

thanks.

Tomcat does not have any support for JMS.

If you want find out about Message Driver Beans (which are EJBs) you will need an application server.

If you want to do anything with JMS you will need a JMS provider. These exists as stand-alone things, or packaged in application servers. Have a google to see whats out there.

If you are only taking your first tentative steps into JMS, forget about the application server for now and have a read of this.

Back in 1.3, you only needed the J2EESDK. It was all command line, but I used this example to get an actual JMS provider/subscriber going back and forth across physical machines.

Please see http://java.sun.com/products/jms/tutorial/1_3_1-fcs/doc/client.html#1025458

I would think there is still a way to do this in 1.4.
