JMS or MVC (Observer pattern) in lightweight front end?

Discussion in 'Java' started by Beatrice Rutger, Jun 5, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    I am developing a pretty lightweight fronted application for our J2EE
    application. The front end has several components that need notification
    of the state change of other (mostly front end components).

    I am worried about the "weight" of JMS libraries - i.e. using JMS
    messaging for the notifications at the front end, since I want the front
    end to be as lightweight as possible. I am thinking of using the
    Observer/Observable design pattern to implement the notifications - am I
    justified in my fear of the weight of the JMS libraries, will the
    observer patter be more lightweight (like I am assuming)?

    Is my fear founded/unfounded, Am I missing anything ?

    Look forward to your valued insight and comments

    B.
