MOM vs. RPC: Communication Models for Distributed Applications
March/April 2005 (vol. 9 no. 2)
pp. 90-93
Daniel A. Menasc?, George Mason University
An important aspect of designing a distributed application is the communication model that connects its various components. Some middleware solutions offer two of the most important communication paradigms: asynchronous messaging and remote procedure call. Message-oriented middleware lets a service's consumers physically and temporally decouple from the service providers. In contrast, RPC is a synchronous method of requesting remote service execution requiring consumers to suspend service execution until they receive a reply from the service provider.
