messaging server

A messaging server is a middleware program that handles messages that are sent for use by other programs using a messaging application program interface (API). A messaging server can usually queue and prioritize messages as needed and saves each of the client programs from having to perform these services.

Messaging and messaging servers usually are organized in one or both of two models: point-to-point messaging and subscribe/publish messaging.
