Symantec Workflow uses a messaging server, SymQ, to handle the exchange of messages between products. SymQ is designed to provide enterprise-class scalability, performance, and failover capabilities for your Workflow-type projects.
You can view SymQ exchanges in the SymQ Configuration tab in Workflow Explorer.
Provides the in-process storage and retrieval of messages.
Transactional message exchange
Provides the transactional methods for message access and manipulation.
SymQ provides point-to-point and publish-subscribe message delivery for workflow applications. The product is highly configurable because its functionality is based on message exchanges (customized message queues) that perform specific tasks. Exchanges can be linked in complex chains to perform complex functions with message data. All of the data that is passed across the message exchange is held in a message envelope. This message envelope has the message ID, the data (payload), and a collection of attributes that can be used to identify and route the object.
SymQ is primarily used in with Workflow-type projects. Workflow-type projects may be the long-running processes that can span an extended period of time. SymQ stores the state data of the workflow during the process. SymQ lets you configure very scalable storage mechanisms to store state data.
