Hi Atul Apte,
Could you please give more detail about this book? When I followed the "Sams Publishing"-> Programming-> Java, I did not find your book. The only available info is Editorial Reviews.

Welcome to JavaRanch Forum.
We are using JMS1.0.2 , what is the difference between this and the recent version of the JMS API.

Going forward Microsoft will push SOAP and UDDI as the way to go for integrating business applications. However there really is not a standard like JCA where a web service can extend the .NET platform or the Windows 2000/NT platform.
The reason for that could be that Microsoft does not have the concept of an application platform (like J2EE) but view the network as the application platform or domain. Hence their strategy appears to be focus on getting different pieces of code and applications integrated over the network as web services.
J2EE on the other hand is more based on the concept that applications will be hosted on the application server and everything else becomes integrated using JCA.
That is my opinion. Perhaps Microsoft will define an integration framework in future.
