Message Bus

If you ever need to do some data processing outside the scope of the web’s request/response, look no further than the Message Bus. It’s conceptually similar to Java Messaging Service (JMS) Topics, but sacrifices transactional, reliable delivery capabilities, making it much lighter-weight. Liferay DXP uses Message Bus all over the place:

  • Auditing
  • Search engine integration
  • Email subscriptions
  • Monitoring
  • Document Library processing
  • Background tasks
  • Cluster-wide request execution
  • Clustered cache replication

You can use it too! Here are some of Message Bus’s most important features:

  • publish/subscribe messaging
  • request queuing and throttling
  • flow control
  • multi-thread message processing

There are also tools, such as the Java SE’s JConsole, that can monitor Message Bus activities.

Since all messages are sent to and received at destinations, messaging destinations is worth exploring first.
