What is Messaging?

Messaging is a communication mechanism used for system interactions. In software development messaging enables distributed communication that is loosely coupled. A messaging client can send messages to, and receive messages from, any other client. The structure of message can be defined as follows-

Synchronous Messaging is implemented when such that the messaging client sends a message and expects the response immediately. So the sender client waits for the response before he can execute the next task. So until and unless the message is recieved the sender is blocked.
Synchronous Communication
Asynchronous Messaging is implemented such that the messaging client sends a message and does not expect the response immediately. So the sender client does not for the response before he can execute the next task. So the sender is not blocked.
Asynchronous Communication
Real time systems usually have a combination of syschronous and ascynchronous communication
Messaging System
Message Broker - are responsible for establishing connections with various client systems. Let us consider role of Message Broker in a telecom system. Suppose initially there is no message broker. Then each telephone connection will have a direct line with all other telephone connections.
Direct Messaging System
Suppose tomorrow if another telephone connection needs to be added, then all existing telephone connections will need to get a direct line with this new telephone connection. As more connections are added this will get more complicated.
Async Messaging System
With Message broker all connections are registered with Message Broker. So all connections only need to connect to the message broker. It will automatically route the message to the correct client based on some message configuration.
