Liberty thin client for JMS

Our product uses the JMS support within Liberty to publish messages that can be subscribed to by clients (Eclipse plug-in or Ant build) to get feedback on long running processes. Currently we rely on the WAS thin client for JMS to provide this capability with our clients but this creates an otherwise unnecessary dependency on WAS when all we are using from it is that thin client jar and the rest of our application runs entirely within a Liberty server.

In addition, recent Eclipse releases (e.g. 2020-09) require a minimum of Java 11. However, the WAS thin client for JMS depends on the ORB classes supplied within Java which presents a problem as since Java 11 these APIs have been dropped from Java SE (JEP 320).

It would be great if Liberty could supply an equivalent thin client for JMS that we could use within clients running Java 11 to communicate with a JMS topic hosted by a Liberty server.
