  • What are Message Maps and the Messaging Framework?

    Manoj Chaurasia

    Last month I wrote about using Request-Reply Maps to call a TIBCO Cloud Integration map from an external application using a simple HTTP request. This time we will look at another method that involves building a simple connector using the Messaging Framework.

    There are many cloud applications that support outgoing webhooks, and the Messaging Framework handles webhooks in either JSON or XML format. Google Forms makes a good example because it?s easily accessible and there is a Google Chrome add-on called Trigger & Send that sends an outgoing webhook whenever someone submits a form.

    The first step in building a connector with the Messaging Framework is to collect an example of the outgoing webhook message you want to catch. You can do this with RequestBin, which gives you a URL that you can put in the outgoing webhook configuration of your application.

    To learn the rest, watch this video, in which I used the Messaging Framework to build a Google Forms connector.

    To try this for yourself, here is what you will need:
