Spread community,
I would like to introduce you to the Message Dispatcher.  The Message
Dispatcher is a powerful framework for the development of distributed
applications over two popular messaging systems: TIBCO and SPREAD. 
The Message Dispatcher allows you to transmit an object model across CPU
boundaries. Your code has no dependency on the underlying transport (you can
switch from TIBCO to SPREAD for instance with a single line change); your
classes have no knowledge of the underlying protocol so there are no
cross-dependencies between classes; and best of all, you don't have to write
any type of streaming functions for any of the classes that you ever
The Message Dispatcher is built on top of the MessagingAPI. The MessagingAPI
is a layer that hides the details of the transport from the user. By using
the MessagingAPI, a new transport can be introduced with virtually no
changes to the application's source code. If you are familiar with TIBCO,
you will find the Messaging API to be very simple to use and intuitive. If
you are using SPREAD as the underlying transport, you will find that the
Messaging API includes a number of high level constructs not available in
Spread that will make the development of your next publish/subscribe
application much simpler (constructs such as Message, Transport, Listener,
The Message Dispatcher is available on a try before you buy basis. The
version available for download on our web site contains the full
functionality of the retail product. The only restriction is that it will
stop processing messages after 60 minutes have elapsed. After that, you must
re-start your application for another 60 minute trial period. If you need a
longer trial period, please feel free to contact us.
The Message Dispatcher is available as a cross-platform library under Linux
(gcc) and Windows (VC6 and .net 2003). A Solaris version (gcc and SunPro)
will be available soon.

I trust you will find that the Message Dispatcher can greatly enhance the
development of your next distributed application.
