JMS is a specification for an API that implementations of message queue software can implement to provide portability between different vendors' products, such as IBM's MQSeries (what's now being called WebSphere MQ) and Microsoft's MSMQ. JMS is a specification of a Java API and as such, cannot be used by a VB program. However, it's perfectly possible to write messages to an MQSeries queue (we do this at work) or an MSMQ queue. I wrote a C# program last week using the MQSeries API to post a message to an MQSeries queue.

There are other ways to communicate, the simplest being:

- Sockets: send messages across TCP/IP. Use the Winsock control in VB to achieve this and some basic socket programming on the Java side.
- Pipes: pipe the output of the VB program to the input of the Java program. This will only work if both programs are on the same machine.
- Web services would be another possibility; however, this is a good deal more heavyweight.

Hope that's of use.

Let me know if the code for a sockets-based solution is needed and I can post the detail.
