Quercus offers a simplified messaging interface built upon JMS. This functionality makes it possible to send and receive messages using either the Resin JMS implementation or any other messaging service with a JMS implementation. Many features of JMS are designed for message-driven services which make sense in the Java world, but are not appropriate for PHP. This tutorial focuses on sending messages.

In this example, the script checks a POST variable "message" and if it is set, sends the value of that variable to a JMS queue. A Message Driven Bean (MDB) receives these messages and records them. The record is displayed by a servlet.

if (array_key_exists("message", $_POST)) { $queue = new JMSQueue("jms/Queue"); if (! $queue) { echo "Unable to get message queue!\n"; } else { if ($queue->send($_POST["message"]) == TRUE) { echo "Successfully sent message '" . $_POST["message"] . "'"; } else { echo "Unable to send message '" . $_POST["message"] . "'"; } } }

The programming model of the Quercus JMS interface is first to create a connection to a queue by instantiating a JMSQueue object. To create a JMSQueue object, pass in the JNDI name of the JMS queue to be used. JMSQueue objects have two methods: send() and receive(). This example shows that using send() is as simple as passing in a PHP value.

JMS requires that two resources be set up: A ConnectionFactory and a Queue. Both are configured in . The ConnectionFactory is used to connect to all the Queues and only one of them needs to be set up. The default JNDI name is jms/ConnectionFactory - Quercus automatically uses this connection factory. Another connection factory may be used by setting the PHP ini variable jms.connection_factory.

<resource jndi-name="jms/ConnectionFactory" type='com.caucho.jms.ConnectionFactoryImpl' />

The example above uses the queue jms/Queue.

<resource jndi-name="jms/Queue" type='com.caucho.jms.memory.MemoryQueue' />
