About this tutorial
This tutorial shows you how to configure message queues in Universal Platform to facilitate real-time messaging between two or more client systems.
Messages exchange or pass data using an interface to a system-managed queue of messages. Messages vary in length and contain data records or system instructions.
So what does this tutorial cover? Well, the scenario is this:
This tutorial explains how to configure messaging between multiple client systems using Universal Platform as the enterprise service bus (ESB). So in this tutorial:
- You will start by enabling the messaging service.
- You will then add a user account that is common to all systems in the messaging process and assign them to a role.
- You will then create credentials for the user account to access the remote ERP client systems at Widget Ltd and Tucker Inc.
- Next you will configure the topic, publisher and subscriber messaging components.
- You will then re-start the messaging service to apply the publisher and subscriber updates.
- Once the service is started, you will check that the publisher and subscriber are successfully started.
- At this stage, your ESB messaging infrastructure is configured to publish messages to the topic and read messages from the topic.
- Since this tutorial demonstrates all tasks on a single messaging server, you will create and process simple messages using pipelines. These pipelines enable you to mimic a system-to-system messaging scenario.
- Once you have configured publisher and subscriber pipelines, you will create an event to trigger the subscriber pipeline when the subscriber sees that there is a new message available from the publisher pipeline.
- You will then view the message in system log to check that your system is configured and working correctly.
Now that you are familiar with what we are going to do in this tutorial, let’s begin!
