service assembly

A collection of service units.

Service Component Architecture (SCA)

A set of specifications that describe a model for building applications and systems using a Service-Oriented Architecture. SCA extends and complements prior approaches to implementing services, and SCA builds on open standards such as Web services. SCA is developed by a consortium of companies. Compare with JBI.

service consumer

See consumer.

service engine

A JBI component that provides business logic and transformation services and also consumes such services.

service provider

A process or application that can respond to requests from a service consumer.

service unit

Artifacts deployed to a JBI component. A service unit configures the component to provide a piece of functionality such as expose an endpoint or route messages.

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)

A loosely-coupled distributed architecture in which service providers make resources available to service consumers in a standardized way. SOA is language and protocol independent.


A JMS object that provides a single-threaded context for producing and consuming messages. JMS clients use the Session object to create producers, consumers, messages, and other artifacts used to work with messages.

solicit-response operation

One type of WSDL-defined abstract operation, in which the service endpoint sends a message and receives a correlated message.

Spring framework

A comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications the uses dependency injection.

See Also dependency injection.

standalone container

A container that is not part of a fabric and does not have a Fabric Agent installed.

store and forward

A paradigm in which brokers receive messages, store them locally, and forwards the message to a recipient when it is able to do so. The message is only deleted once it has been successfully delivered.

Streaming Text Orientated Messaging Protocol (STOMP)

A language agnostic, simple text-based protocol that allows clients to talk with any message broker supporting the protocol.

substitution group

A feature of XML Schema that allows you to define groups of elements that may be used interchangeably in instance documents. For example, a vehicle head element might be defined with automobile, boat, and airplane substitution elements, any of which could be used wherever the vehicle element might be used. A substitution group is defined using the substitutionGroup attribute of the XML Schema element.

See Also abstract head element.
