Messages and Message Queues

Platform's integration framework includes an asynchronous messaging facility. This provides reliable & efficient data transfer between two Platform instances, or between a Platform instance and non-Platform systems using polled files, HTTP/S, SFTP or other protocols/mechanisms.

In general, Platform emphasizes asynchronous, message-based integration to decouple systems; it is resilient to downtime on participating systems, and is designed to handle large messages of multiple megabytes and larger.

This User’s Guide describes how one can configure Platform Message Queues to accommodate various integration scenarios.
