Notification Services

Our Events Notification Service (ENS) sends notifications about selected events using push or pull subscription to event consumers who are interested in those events.

For example, when student grades are posted, a system such as BearFacts with a notification API can send out notices to all interested parties that grades have been posted. A student-facing system receiving those events can thus learn about grade events without having to constantly ask, “have the grades been posted yet?”

Publishers can configure the message in a number of ways to determine how it's delivered, and to whom. Consumers can receive messages using JMS by subscribing to specific queues.
