The TIBCO Enterprise Message Service™ (EMS) product plays two important roles in TIBCO-based designs. One is as an application-level messaging transport, and the other is as the internal application-level communications infrastructure underlying the TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Bus. Consequently, it is important for an architect to have some familiarity with this product.
Most of the required familiarity with EMS can be acquired through the supplied product documentation. The information presented here is intended merely to provide an overview of the product. For further information, the reader should consult the technical documentation supplied with the product.
