The Java Messaging API (JMS) provides a mechanism for Java EE applications to send messages to each other. JMS applications do not communicate directly, instead message producers send messages to a destination and message consumers receive the message from the destination.
The message destination is a message queue when the point-to-point (PTP) messaging domain is used, or a message topic when the publish/subscribe (pub/sub) messaging domain is used.
In this article by David Heffelfinger, author of the book Java EE 6 with GlassFish 3 Application Server, we will cover the following topics:
- Setting up GlassFish for JMS
- Working with message queues
This two-part article series by Peter Ritchie, author of Refactoring with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, introduces code quality metrics like cohesion and coupling. Principles related to cohesion and coupling are introduced and refactorings that increase cohesion and decrease coupling are covered in this article series. In this first part we will cover how cohesion can be applied to increase code quality.Read Microsoft Visual Studio 2010: Improving Class Quality with Cohesion in full

Some level of automated unit testing is required to maintain the quality of the software to support the refactoring effort. In this article by Peter Ritchie, author of Refactoring with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, we'll discuss various aspects of unit testing, as well as how to approach unit testing with Visual Studio. We will cover some testing frameworks to facilitate writing, like mocking frameworks, and executing those tests. We'll cover the following topics:
- Automated testing
- Unit tests
- Mocking frameworks
- Unit test frameworks
- Unit testing legacy code
- Test-driven development
- Third party refactoring tools
