Including or not integration between IM and SMS, this will be the second Apple stab to traditional telco operators revenue - Facetime was #1 - since iOS will exchange free messages among iOS users, perhaps even OSX users at some point (same route as Facetime), going around SMS. Of course, IM is nothing new, just like video calling was nothing new, but what is relevant here, is that #1 mobile platform (according to yesterday's keynote) is replacing/extending the standard mobile device messaging system, SMS, with IM, and that opens doors for a much clever system, and where the traditional telco operator is not involved, other than be the data pipe if 3G is used instead of Wi-Fi.
The details about iMessage system are almost none, besides what you can view at the keynote video (iMessage is announced at around 1h and 11min), the Apple SVP just slips the detail that it will use the proven and reliable Apple Push Notification System, which serves billions of notifications. If I remember correctly this system uses XMPP. In humble opinion Apple is in the right direction, choosing finest standards for each functionality needed, SIP for call control, XMPP for IM.
In my mind there are a few doubts for what is coming next, the first about iOS 6, will there be an iVoice/iCall, closing the circle and providing a final stab into operators? The second, related with Android, will Google turn GTalk the main messaging system too, with SMS integration, and put SMS as "past" feature for old mobile phones? The third related with all mobile OSes, will there be any interop?

Sometimes you need to deploy complex applications which touch different standards/platform, for instance a SLEE application which interacts with a Java EE component, and in such case it is important that each part of the system deploys (and undeploys) in correct order. In JBoss AS5 and 6 it is possible to setup a custom deploy order by using some specific meta data, and I just create an article on how to do it, check it out.

- Maven DU Plugin 2.0.0.CR1 - a plugin which creates JAIN SLEE deployable units
- Maven Library Plugin 1.0.0.CR1 - a plugin which creates JAIN SLEE Library jars
A couple of articles were added to the new Mobicents wiki at jboss.org, explaining how the plugins may be used.
UPDATE 1: CR1 versions of both plugins had an issue with the plugins descriptor, both are fixed in new versions:
- Maven DU Plugin 2.0.0.CR2
- Maven Library Plugin 1.0.0.CR2
UPDATE 2: A couple more issues were found with DU Plugin CR2, with respect to bundling services, a new fixed version is already available:

Also, all the RA, Enabler and Example projects of components bundled with the Mobicents JAIN SLEE release now use the newest plugin versions. A few examples:
