Certainly it is possible that the JMS interface might not support the
full richness of what XMLBlaster can do.  But I think you could find a
way to do the XML meta information through the JMS interface.

Certainly I would not suggest you abandon the cross-language work you
are doing and become "just another JMS implementation".  However, when I
am programming a Java app that needs to talk to MOM, I would prefer to
use the JMS API.  It is indeed a Sun spec as opposed to a standard, but
as you point out it is being widely accepted by MOM vendors.
