Hi ,
I am doing some research on Java based architectures for Distributed Computing.
Can anyone shed some light on JMS and Javaspaces, and the advantages/disdvantages of both.

Thanks !

JMS is a messaging framework which allows different applications to communicate with each other by transferring messages. It uses queue infrastructure for asynchronous communication:

Javaspaces gives you a platform for exchange/ co-ordination of distributed objects. It is included in JINI:

Continuing from what mayankeagle said:

JMS was built for use in low bandwidth (such as localhost) communication between processes (whether it be identical host processes or not). JMS was one of the first frameworks to implement both a queue (point to point) messaging system and a topic (publish/subscribe) messaging system. JMS uses simple (most of the time) Message objects that can contain any or all of some common objects (Objects, Strings, ints, etc). It achieves fast delivery times by use of the small (overhead) size of the Message objects. I am currently working on a project that has one large java app running receiving (pulling) messages from both queues and topics while several other java processes (15+) put formatted messages into respected queue/topics. There are tons of guides for JMS and since JMS is just a framework there are no specifics one could give about JMS (different implementations from message broker to message broker).

Sorry i cannot be of more assistance with Javanamespaces as i have very little expericence with them.
