15-day Public Review for SCA JMS Binding Specification Version 1.1

The OASIS Service Component Architecture / Bindings (SCA-Bindings) TC [1] members have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:

Service Component Architecture JMS Binding Specification Version 1.1
Committee Specification Draft 06 / Public Review Draft 04
14 July 2011

Specification Overview:
This document specifies the means by which SCA composites and components, as defined in the 'Service Component Architecture Assembly Model Specification Version 1.1', connect to and access services using a messaging protocol. The connectivity is based on the 'Java Message Service Specification v1.1' and is provided by a 'binding.jms' element which applies to the references and services of an SCA component or composite.

The JMS binding provides JMS-specific details of the connection to the required JMS resources. It supports the use of Queue and Topic type destinations.

The binding is especially well suited for use by services and references of composites that are directly deployed, as opposed to composites that are used as implementations of higher-level components. Services and references of deployed composites become system-level services and references, which are intended to be used by non-SCA clients.

TC Description:
The SCA Bindings technical committee defines the manner in which SCA composites and components communicate using a variety of protocols.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts Tuesday 6 September 2011 and ends Wednesday 21 September 2011. The specification was previously submitted for a 15-day public review on 26 January 2011 [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Please direct review comments to the PDF copy of the specification.

Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF file [3].

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
