Event gateways are to application server environments what the CFQUERY tag was to database interaction. As you will see, the event gateway technology transforms ColdFusion 8 from just another Web application server to an enterprise services platform, allowing ColdFusion 8 applications to work with just about any other application and/or platform over any well-defined protocol including SMS, RMI, MQ, JSM, AMS, TCP, and UDP. If you have ever worked with message-oriented middleware, much of the paradigm behind event gateways will be obvious to you. On the other hand, if you’ve not, the ColdFusion event gateway operates like MOM.
