IIOP Gateway and OrbixTalk MessageStore, providing a complete off the

OrbixTalk 2.0 Features
- Fault Tolerance:
and network failure of messaging services; a critical component of
applications such as those for financial trading which require instant and
continuous access to market data. Achieved by ensuring
pairs of OrbixTalk programs operate simultaneously and can run singly in the
event of one of the pairs failing.
- Integration Hooks:
allows messaging applications built using OrbixTalk to
easily integrate with other enterprise applications and services.
- Total off the shelf solution:
The OrbixTalk 2.0 development kit now includes a copy of Orbix 2.3,
OrbixTalk MessageStore, OrbixTalk IIOP Gateway and OrbixTalk Directory
Enquiries Daemon. MessageStore provides guaranteed delivery by ensuring that
if registered 'listeners' miss messages through system or network
difficulties, any missed messages will be forwarded as soon as the target
recipient comes back on line. The OrbixTalk Directory Enquiries Daemon
stores information about applications which have sent and received messages.
The OrbixTalk IIOP Gateway allows access to OrbixTalk by Java, Smalltalk or
other IIOP based clients.
- Unattended Operation:
services including OrbixTalk Directory Enquiries and OrbixTalk MessageStore
to start up and shut down independently and removes the need to manually
administer each messaging service individually.
- OrbixTalk Version Independence:
removes the need
to standardize on the same versions of Orbix and OrbixTalk and allows
greater flexibility in integrating messaging applications with other
enterprise systems within or outside the organization or network.
