In this section, we briefly introduce the core concepts of messaging system and the JMS standard, and then describe how GlassFish supports JMS resources.

Message-based systems and JMS

A simplified view of a typical message-based system is illustrated in the following figure.

As shown in the figure, the communication pattern of a messaging-based system is different from the client-server paradigm, where application components communicate with each other directly. Instead, in a message-based system, the communication among application components (producers and consumers) is mediated by a message service provider.
