I would like that very much to happen myself, but I am not convinced that it
will, based on the current direction of things.

The way people have been talking so far about messaging infrastructure being
combined with Web Services is at the level of running SOAP on top of
existing MOM systems like MQSeries, MSMQ, etc. But these are all proprietary
systems (and using JMS as a common API does not change that). In particular,
when one of these systems is chosen, both communication points must support
the same system.

I personally don't see how wrapping these messaging systems in XML and SOAP
can turn them into something non proprietary and easy to deploy and manage.
Maybe you had something else in mind, which I would like to hear.

Thank you,
Ugo
