Software AG Universal Messaging is best used in conjunction with Software AG webMethods integration platform, as it works seamlessly with other components of that platform such as webMethods Integration Server and webMethods Trading Networks. It can be used with any messaging client developed in Java or .NET and supports JMS clients, however, it is best suited to being used as one component in an organization that is going to implement the entire webMethods platform to implement their Enterprise Service Bus integration solution.

TIBCO Rendezvous is a fast and reliable mode of communication, although they are already outdated by TIBCO FTL, which is even more faster and reliable than it's predecessor. They are more suitable for communication between the TIBCO products as all the TIBCO suite of products support the TIBCO Rendezvous. They are more widely used by banks and stock ticker applications to broadcast the ticker information. Most of the applications support Java JMS mode easily and out of the box than the TIBCO Rendezvous. Hence the TIBCO software themselves have their own version of the JMS server called Tibco EMS ( Tibco Enterprise messaging service).

Not likely to renew or buy the license as they are using the TIBCO EMS as the primary mode of communication.

Attending an official TIBCO classroom training, where you can have an active participation with an expert teacher, you can find the answers to all yours needs. In any case, if you are not satisfied on your requests, the teacher takes the time to find the best solution.
I had the opportunity to attend one and I could learn all features I needed for my business: now I can say TIBCO Rendezvous is very usable.

I never needed support for TIBCO Rendezvous. I always used it without any issue and until now I don't remember some situations where it interrupted its 24/7 uptime.

Software AG
Software AG Universal Messaging has excellent performance characteristics, a good high availability story, and works great when you are using the other products in the Software AG webMethods integration platform, as our organization is. It has relatively high licensing costs, which is a large negative when compared with open-source solutions such as Apache Kafka. However, Software AG provides good support services, and is a market leader in the integration space, giving some surety for risk-averse organizations that if something goes wrong we have a vendor we can rely on to help fix it.

  • All a non-TIBCO based applications need to use the TIBCO Rendezvous APIs and reprogrammed to communicate with other application using the Tibco Rendezvous.
  • All applications and enterprises need to have an enterprise license to communicate with each other.
  • TIBCO offers their Rendezvous APIs in various programming languages. Hence any application can use these APIs to start using the Tibco Rendezvous. Although most application prefers not to as TIBCO Rendezvous is TIBCO 's closely guarded recipe.
