Messaging enables software applications to connect and scale. Messaging is asynchronous, decoupling applications by separating sending and receiving data. The Message Broker is a common platform to send and receive messages, gives messages a safe place to live until received, and translates a message from the formal messaging protocol of the sender to the formal messaging protocol of the receiver.
