The first step in implementing your application is to define the content of the events that will be used to communicate information between your client applications and the Broker. Events are defined using Software AG Designer, described in the Software AG Designer Online Help .
Note:Broker events are known as Broker document types in Designer.
Events contain data that allow applications to communicate with each other. An event may be used to represent:
*Requests to a database application to retrieve or write data.
*Banking transactions such as deposits, withdrawals, and transfers.
*News headlines, stock quotes, or money exchange rates.
*Customer orders, invoices, packing slips, or credit memos.
