JORAM: Java (TM) Open Reliable Asynchronous Messaging
JORAM has been made available for download since May 2000.
As a standalone software, JORAM has been downloaded more than 100,000 times.
JORAM incorporates a 100% pure Java implementation of JMS
(Java Message Service API released by Sun Microsystem, Inc.). It provides access to a MOM
(Message Oriented Middleware), built on top of the ScalAgent D.T.
agents based distributed platform.
JORAM is an open source software released under the LGPL license.
JORAM provides full support to JMS 1.1:
- Unified interfaces for the Point-to-Point (PTP) and
Publish/Subscribe (Pub/Sub) messaging models
AND still the semantically specific PTP and
- Full backward compatibility with JMS 1.0.2b compliant
- Local, TCP and SOAP (HTTP/XML) client-server communication
- Message persistence and guarantee of delivery
- Hierarchical topics
- Message selection
- Message prioritization
- A JCA 1.5 Resource Adapter
JORAM also includes the following extra-features:
- A persistent, reliable and distributed JNDI server
- A configurable dead message queue
- Load balancing through clustered topics and queues
- Monitoring methods
- A bridge feature allowing to link JORAM to any JMS compliant messaging platform
- kJoram: a client libraries allowing J2ME applications to access the JORAM platform in a JMS 1.1 "way"
- Xoram: a client libraries allowing C or C++ applications to access the JORAM platform in a JMS 1.1 "way"
- An implementation of the current specification of AMQP
- High Availability provides the active replication of Joram servers and underlying agent servers,
as well as replicated JORAM clients. It transparently handles network handover and server failover.
This version currently relies on the use of JGroups.
- Dynamic Configuration provides facilities to remotely add and remove Joram servers dynamically
through the Administration API of JORAM. This great feature, combined with updated JMX implementation,
initiates a new set of management facilities in JORAM.

Any input or personal view for improving and/or developing JORAM is welcome. JORAM, as an
open source project, also welcomes external contributions.
