Sorry, if this forum is not appropriate for this Post.
I'm having one application deployed on Oracle 9iAS. This application is based on EJB technology and it is using JMS. For JMS, we are using SwiftMQ.
Can anyone tell me, do we have any better alternative than SwiftMQ and moreover, can we avoid implementing JMS?
I'm very much new to JMS, and not very clear with the exact use of JMS.

JMS is a messaging service that handles, well, messages. In EJB there are Message Driven Beans, and they are mainly used to send messages without the sender or receiver having to know each other, and/or even being connected at the same time.
Thing of it as E-mail on steriods. well you can compare it to e-mail
When you send an e-mail, the recepient isn't online, you can send it without anything but internet conenction and a mail server to connect to.
Now on the other end, the receiver can get your e-mail message at any time they like and respond accordingly. That is the purpose of JMS.
When yuo need JMS is obviously a design question and the specifications of your application determine if it is needed.
I am going to move this. I will update my response witht he forum, once I determine which is the best forum.
