There is more afoot with messaging and Ajax. ActiveMQ is an open source MOM, and it now has support for Ajax.
Ajax support in ActiveMQ builds on top of the REST connector for ActiveMQ which allows any web capable device to send or receive messages over JMS.
Client side view
This means that the DHTML client can send or receive messages asynchronously from the users interaction and can easily databind XML messages received with the HTML DOM to produce some revolutionary applications all with standard DHTML technologies.
The web browser can then render active views of information which can update in real time.
Server side view
We use a MessageServlet on the server side to handle the HTTP traffic; together with an optional NIO based servlet engine (Jetty) for handling large numbers of concurrent clients.
