Sample Code for Java Messaging Service (JMS)

Here is some sample code that shows how to use JMS. It is followed by the property files:

 import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.Hashtable;
 import javax.jms.JMSException;
 import javax.jms.MessageListener;
 import javax.jms.Session;
 import javax.jms.Topic;
 import javax.jms.TopicConnection;
 import javax.jms.TopicConnectionFactory;
 import javax.jms.TopicSession;
 import javax.jms.TopicSubscriber;
 import javax.naming.Context;
 import javax.naming.InitialContext;
 import javax.naming.NamingException;
