Available Tools

Provides a mechanism to quickly find the set of interested subscribers for a given topic. Your application-specific business process must both invoke the PubSub routing engine and also dispatch messages to subscribers as part of a business process (this is in order to make the actual processing of messages as flexible as possible).
