Technical Definition    (2WDW)

Message-oriented middleware (MOM) is a client/server infrastructure that increases the interoperability, portability, and flexibility of an application by allowing the application to be distributed over multiple heterogeneous platforms. It reduces the complexity of developing applications that span multiple operating systems and network protocols by insulating the application developer from the details of the various operating system and network interfaces- Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that extend across diverse platforms and networks are typically provided by the MOM.    (2WDX)
