The IBM® Lotus® Expeditor product is an integral part of a service-oriented architecture (SOA). In many distributed environments, there is a need for the remote systems of application components to participate by using lightweight messaging protocols with various servers and applications throughout the enterprise. The content is focused in the pervasive messaging domain, that is, the messaging systems that are deployed in client or small server applications located at the edge of the enterprise network. The goal of pervasive messaging is to enable people, applications, and devices to share information and to respond to each other regardless of where they are located in relation to each other.
This wiki provides detail about the messaging aspect of the Lotus Expeditor product that is required for individuals and organizations to make informed application and design decisions prior to implementing a Lotus Expeditor infrastructure or beginning development of a Lotus Expeditor application. The wiki is intended for an audience that is made up of a wide-range of disciplines. The audience includes developers, administrators, solution architects, and specialists who will be working to adopt messaging into their environment, so that they can easily stretch their existing SOA infrastructure to the edge in a rapid way with minimal effort or cost. If you plan to use this wiki as a guide to develop applications, you must have a basic knowledge of the Java programming language.
This wiki was created through a process of using wiki-based technology and the proven processes that are used to write traditional Redbooks publications. A team of experts from around the world participated and collaborated to create this wiki. By providing the content in this form, a community of experts can continue to enhance and maintain the information presented here.
