NAME

App::MessageDispatcher - Interface for sending/receiving (possibly) async messages

SYNOPSIS

    use App;

    $context = App->context();
    $messaging = $context->service("MessageDispatcher");  # or ...
    $messaging = $context->messaging();

    ($status, $ticket) = $messaging->send(
        recipient => $recipient,
        message => $message
    );

    $message = $messaging->receive();

    $message = $messaging->receive(
        sender => $sender,
    );

    $message = $messaging->receive(
        ticket => $ticket,
    );

DESCRIPTION

A MessageDispatcher service is a means by which data can be sent asynchronously (or synchronously) to a recipient and responses can be received.

Because the possibility exists for the messaging channel to be asynchronous, code that uses a MessageDispatcher service must code for the most complicated case (asynchronous).
