All implemented parts are considered stable, as we have
a powerful, fully automized testsuite.

Basic PtP and Pub/Sub is both finished.

XmlBlaster is not JMS conforming, and it is not our
goal to be a JMS implementation.
I heared from some other users, that they think of
adding a xmlBlaster - JMS gateway, i don't know if they
are working on it.
IMHO, JMS as several drawbacks.
We want to be simpler and more powerful - which we are :-)

You can access xmlBlaster from any CORBA, RMI or XmlRpc aware
language (JMS is Java only).

Our interface is simple, some 4 or 5 methods which
do all the magic.

You can query topics with XPath which is a standard based on
JMS has a key/value based approach.

But as we say, all roads lead to Rome -
their are many ways to solve a problem.
