Woohoo! Thanks to MarkB for pointing this out:
ActiveMQ implements a REST-ful API to messaging which allows any web capable device to publish or consume messages using a regular HTTP POST or GET.

(ActiveMQ is an open source, Apache 2.0 licenced Message Broker and JMS 1.1 implementation.)

I had done a servlet just like this (probably not nearly as professional) and posted it over on SourceForge It's very gratifying to see someone else attempt the same thing. Next, I'd like to see SMTP and NNTP smoothed over and made transparent by some decent HTTP gateways - oh wait, isn't Google doing that?
