If you’re an enterprise developer of mobile or web applications, you’ve probably used HTTP and a RESTful API to post data into your app server which in turn connected to a message bus for distribution to back-end assets. Getting data flowing back and forth is the tip of the iceberg – the real work lies in making it performant and resilient, and of course testing the heck out of it. That’s where direct easy access to a message bus can seriously accelerate your coding by taking care of those tedious parts of building, testing and deploying bulletproof services.
Here are some examples of what you get when a fully featured message bus is available to your application development:
Web application design has revolutionized rapid prototyping and accelerated the delivery of services, and REST/HTTP have proven to be a flexible way to connect clients and servers across such an architecture. Bringing the power of a message bus to these applications makes it faster to develop advanced functionality, integrate from client to rich back end services and simplifying operations.
