Posix message queues handle this quite well. They are queues, however. Not a message bus, which works better for many n-tiered applications. A good commercial one for that is Tibco's Rendezvous message bus, or Applied Materials' DMBX. I have used both for very complex client-server systems where you can have multiple servers handling a message queue - each message is dispatched to the next available server, automatically creating a load-balancing environment.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
