California-based messaging infrastructure vendor, Talarian Corporation, has introduced SmartSockets for JMS, the company's newest implementation of the Sun Java Message Service (JMS) specification.
JMS, a component of the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), is a specification published by Sun Microsystems that defines a set of programming interfaces by which Java programmes can access message-orientated middleware from software infrastructure vendors.
Tom Laffey, chief technology officer for Talarian,says: "Many of our customers were looking for a very large-scale JMS solution. SmartSockets for JMS helps fulfill their needs for a standardised high performance, enterprise ready messaging solution."
Running on top of Talarian's adaptive multicast technology, the new product enables developers to achieve faster time-to-market with real-time performance, reliability, and rich Internet application support, says the company.
SmartSockets for JMS is designed to allow enterprise customers to quickly and easily develop messaging systems and capabilities that adhere to generally recognised Java industry standards. The system uses the underlying Talarian publish-subscribe and queing engines to deliver an industry standard interface.
