WebMethods -2: Messaging & Triggers Explained

There are two types of message styles popular in Software AG

·   Point to Point: In this style of messaging, message is sent between message provider and consumer. Both provider and consumer are known. The destination is represented as queue. Exactly one consumer will receive a single message. If there are no consumers available at the time the message is sent it will be kept until a consumer is available that can process the message. If a consumer receives a message and does not acknowledge it before closing then the message will be redelivered to another consumer. The producer and consumer are knows as senders and receivers.




· Publish-Subscribe: This messaging style enable message producer to publish message, which is subscribed by various interested consumers. When you publish a message it goes to all the subscribers who are interested - so zero to many subscribers will receive a copy of the message. Only subscribers who had an active subscription at the time the broker receives the message will get a copy of the message.





Note: The publishers and subscribers never communicate with each other directly. Instead, they communicate by exchanging messages through a message Broker
