The JNBridge JMS adapters for .NET and BizTalk Server are now available!

We’re happy to announce that JNBridge has released two new products: JMS adapters for .NET and for BizTalk Server!

Over the years, one of the most frequent scenarios for which customers have used our core JNBridgePro product (and for which they’ve often asked for assistance), is integration with JMS (Java Message Service). We’ve provided guidance on this, so that users can implement calls from .NET to JMS, and also create BizTalk Server adapters for JMS. However, for users to implement this integration with JNBridgePro requires knowledge of both .NET programming and JMS programming, and knowledge of the BizTalk Server Adapter Framework. These are not skill sets that most customers have, so we have often been asked to provide a full supported product. Well, we’ve listened, and the result is the two new adapters.

Both adapters will work with any vendor’s JMS implementation. Neither requires the deployment of any components on the JMS server, and neither require any knowledge of JMS programming. Both offer a full set of JMS capabilities, including point-to-point and publish/subscribe, durable subscriptions, JMS security, and message headers, filters, and selectors.

The BizTalk Server adapter works with both BizTalk Server 2006 and 2006 R2, and allows you to connect orchestration send and receive ports to JMS queues and topics. The .NET adapter is based on the new WCF Line-of-Business Adapter Framework, and allows you to access JMS messages and queues from custom .NET applications, or any Microsoft or third-party software that can consume a WCF endpoint.

There’s lots of information on the new adapters at and If you have any questions about the adapters, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Welcome to the JNBridge WCF Adapter for JMS Blog!

Hello all! The beta program for the JNBridge JMS Adapter is under way. Those of you who’ve already registered for the Beta Partner Program will receive an e-mail linking you to the download page for Beta1. If you haven’t registered, go to  and I’ll follow up with the link.  

I’m Bill Heinzman. I will be the main contact for the beta program. Direct all your questions to beta@jnbridge.comI’ll be providing all technical support, receiving and replying to your questions and feedback.  I know you’re all busy, so if you run into a problem, or don’t understand the documentation—don’t waste your time, send me an e-mail and I’ll remedy the problem ASAP.

I’ll be blogging several times a week providing technical articles on the capabilities of the JNBridge JMS Adapter in combination with WCF, .Net and Visual Studio. I’ll start out each week with a summary of things learned (and the resulting new feature) ,  things fixed and directions to the latest documentation, patch or beta bits.

For those of you new to JNBridge’s technology and the JMS Adapter, here’s the synopsis:

The JNBridge WCF Adapter for JMS™ is a Windows Communication Foundation implementation that encapsulates Java Message Service client capabilities into a standard WCF Line of Business Adapter. The JNBridge JMS Adapter integrates JMS into into any .Net solution using Visual Studio 2005.

The JNBridge JMS Adapter exposes a simple, yet dynamic  interface for producing and consuming JMS messages to and from queues and topics without requiring knowledge of JMS classes, architecture—or even Java, for that matter. During the installation of the JNBridge JMS Adapter, a new plugin is added to Visual Studio that provides design time integration in .Net applications. By using the new Add Adapter Service Reference plugin, a developer can create a .Net C# WCF client proxy for integration into a .Net assembly, form or application.  The developer can browse specific send and receive operations particular to the queues and topics discovered on any JMS implementation including OpenJMS, JBoss, Websphere, Tibco EMS and WebLogic.

This support for any vendor’s JMS implementation is accomplished through the JNBridge .NettoJava interoperability product, JNBridgePro. For more information on JNBridgePro, visit
