A white paper that favorably compares the Java Messaging Service capabilities of Sonic Software Corp.'s SonicMQ to those of Tibco Software Inc.'s Enterprise for JMS has sparked a lawsuit. In the suit, filed last week in California Superior Court in San Francisco, Tibco charges Sonic with, among other things, statutory unfair competition, common-law unfair competition, and common-law fraud. A Tibco spokesperson says that the results of the testing were unfair and that the white paper wasn't from an independent third party, and Tibco is seeking a restraining order and preliminary injunction against Sonic's continued publication of the paper. Sonic president Greg O'Connor says Sonic "makes it obvious" in the white paper that it paid the tester. IBM, Sonic, and Tibco have emerged as the top three companies incorporating into their products Java Messaging Service, part of Sun Microsystems' Java 2 Enterprise Edition platform.
