   ( Slightly off topic ) JMS and other messaging

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I am a big fan of messaging since it seems to hide entire implementations
from the calling routine.  I believe this is a competitor to soap.  

Anyway. Does any one here use XML and messaging?  

Also there seems to be people that are scared to use messaging with the
following criticism:

1) extra layer 
2) slow
3) what if the messaging company goes out of business.

for 1 I actually think it is a plus many times

2) It may slow something down but at the same time may help when trying to
scale something since it facilitates throwing hardware at a bottleneck

3) I think with some careful engineering one can create a very light layer
that hides all of the messaging implementation.  If one would need to swap
out the messaging API then it should be just a matter of changing one small
layer of code. 

For example.  Create your own message like objects and then in a layer
translate these objects into a message. 

I would like to hear your thoughts on messaging ... also messaging vs. soap.
