An event queue is an event-based publish-subscribe solution for the application information delivery and messaging. It provides asynchronous communication for different modules/roles in a loosely-coupled and autonomous fashion.
By publishing, a module (publisher) sends out messages without explicitly specifying or having knowledge of intended recipients. By subscribing, a receiving module (subscriber) receives messages that the subscriber has registered an interest in, without explicitly specifying or knowing the publisher.
ZK generalizes the event queue to support the server push. The use is straightforward: specifying the scope of a given event queue as EventQueues.APPLICATION (or EventQueues.SESSION, but rare). For example,
EventQueue que = EventQueues.lookup("chat", EventQueues.APPLICATION, true);
For more information about event queues, please refer to the Event Handling: Event Queues section.
