W3C has recently released W3C Candidate Recommendation for soap over jms, http://www.w3.org/TR/soapjms/

The above document specifies how SOAP should bind to a messaging system that supports the Java Message Service. Binding is specified for both SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2.

What does this bring to the table?

  • The primary objective is to ensure interoperability between the implementations of different Web services vendors
  • Also some providers of Web services use intermediary services such as routing gateways; or SOAP/HTTP to SOAP/JMS gateways, they will be interested in the standards
  • Reliable way of delivering soap message

Can interoperabilty be an issue here?

Binding soap to JMS leave the other platforms which are not based on java

Note some of the existing capabilty which some of the vendors offer
