Is the JMS support in java like JDBC in as much that its self contained and does not need any operating system client installed files to work.

If for example I write an application in java on my machine and there is an installation of IBM MQ on a server. Can I address and read/write data to the queues on the server without having to perform an IBM MQ installation on my machine ?

Would I need some IBM .jar file to support thier technology/implementation ?

Thanks

Dave

JMS is a specification like JDBC. you need some implementation of JDBC like your dirver. You cannot use JDBC without a driver. Sameway JMS is with J2EE and it needs JMS implementation to run.

As you said MQ is with IBM and it is commercial. You can use openjms provided by SUN for dev purpose
