WISEN Presentation Abstract:

Lessons in Messaging

Steven P. Reiss, Department of Computer Science, Brown University

Broadcast message servers have been around for ten years now and have been used extensively in a range of applications. In this talk we relate our experiences with messaging in programming environments and other tools. We point out several facets of messaging that, while not immediately obvious, are important considerations in the design and development of a message system. We conclude by discussing the implications of these considerations for wide-area messaging.
