JMS is the Java standard for accessing enterprise messaging systems. This session introduces JMS 2.0 (JSR 343), the first update in more than a decade and easily the longest-awaited component of the forthcoming Java EE 7 standard. The biggest new feature of JMS 2.0 is a new API that makes JMS much easier to use, especially in a Java EE application. JMS 2.0 also provides API features to support greater scalability as well as additional messaging features and a long list of minor enhancements and clarifications. With JMS 2.0 final with Java EE 7, now is an ideal time to find out more about it.

In this session, we will also discuss what might be next for the JMS specification.
