WSO2 webinar on January 31, examines how IT professionals can streamline complicated messaging patterns to provide flexibility and reliability coupled with end-to-end connectivity Palo Alto, CA – January 24, 2013 – Today, most enterprise systems are built with remote procedure call (RPC) style messaging. This requires users to send a request, wait for the response, and process a response using the same thread. However, as simple as this process sounds, there are many scenarios where more advanced messaging patterns are needed. To help IT professionals address this challenge, WSO2 will present a webinar that examines how to simplify distributed message brokering with new functionality being added to WSO2 Message Broker . The one-hour technical session, “WSO2 Product Release Webinar – Distributed Message Brokering with the WSO2 Message Broker,” will run Thursday, January 31, from 9:00 a.m.– 10:00 a.m. PST. For more information, visit http://wso2.com/library/webinars/2013/01/wso2-product-release-webinar-distributed-message-brokering-wso2-message-broker. The webinar will begin with a preview of WSO2 Message Broker 2.1.1, including key features and core capabilities. The latest version is based on a new distributed design that provides a cluster of message brokers, which uses Apache Cassandra to store messages and Apache Zookeeper to coordinate message delivery. The session will examine how IT professionals can improve speed and scalability through support for AMQP 0-91 and JMS 1.0, as well as work with other tools from the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform. Additionally, the webinar will explore how to support asynchronous messaging, publishing and subscribing messaging queues, and persistence.
