In case you haven’t noticed or checked out what we’ve been doing with BAM, now might be a good time. BAM takes its inspiration from XMPP, but expands it into a fully-fledged enterprise message architecture. What this means for developers is that we’re presenting a much cleaner, easier, and more composable framework in which to write your message-based apps compared to SOA and JMS-style approaches. How do we know it’s cleaner and easier? We’re using it ourselves as the basis for our next-generation of Resin for advanced clustering features, remote deployment, and even JMS. This being said, BAM is still in development so it might take a couple of releases before we declare it stable.
If you’re interested in checking out BAM, come on out to the Silicon Valley Code Camp this Saturday to see me talk about it.
