Hi We need to develop a notification system where one application sends notifications to a few consumers. we will probably need synchronous and asynchronous requests. the applications are completely decoupled and therefor we will probably use soap services as the notification messages. it should be reliable and fault tolerance. the plane is to use soap over jms,maybe with axis as the soap engine and we are considering JBoss messaging as the JMS provider. my question is: can JBoss WS be a replacement for Axis? can it use JMS as its transport layer?
