Overview of message oriented middleware technology (MOM).
Message Oriented Middleware allows asynchronous operation between sender and receiver of information. This greatly reduces temporal coupling and allows building flexible and extensible application architectures. Message queues managed by message brokers are used as information exchanges between sender and receiver. The subscribe-publish pattern allows producers and consumers to share information through message brokers without any direct coupling between them. Various message oriented protocols like MSMQ, AMQP, XMPP and MQTT have emerged that serve the diverse needs of different environments.
