Message and Data Broker

The present invention disclosion relates generally to data processing systems, and more specifically to data processing systems in which processes running in one or more systems exchanges asyncronous messages needing to be coordinated according to common business model and protocols. In particular, the invention concerns a message broker system (herein identified by the IRN solution) integrating generic message exchain requests to the user defined business model. In this way new asyncronous paradigms can exploited like: virtual session, multi-dimension objects, sequences, automatic header/footer insertion, etc.

    The solution consists of a method and a middleware infrastructure providing services that are complementary to those provided by any generic message asynchronous services.

The purpose is to solve the problem of enabling an asynchronous support to carry complex messages (such as more than one message related among each other, sequence management, logical sessions handling). The services, acting as a Broker, controls and manages the data gathering and delivery phases, as well as the activation phase for the target processes. The services implements protocols specialized for: single/multiple messages delivery, messages sequence check, logical sessions handling (start/in-fligth/end phases), complex/cross-boundary messages integrity. Data gathering and control can be applied to: native asynchronous messages, flat files, relational DBS, S...
