hi, I am sending the xml files to a jms queue i cant send file object as a message i am coverting it into text message. upon receiving this message with jdom i am converting it again to the xml file, after that i have to validate it against the specified schema. I felt its a long process and lot of conversions what is the easiest way to send an xml file trough jms and receive, parse and validate against specified schema. its kinda desiginig. please share our thoughts. thanks for the people supporting this site.
