Generally, messaging is the creation, storage, exchange, and management of text, images, voice, telex, fax, e-mail, paging, and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) over a communications network. Lots of people involve in messaging on a daily basis, with the proliferation of messaging apps, and the availability of mobile phones.
When it comes programming, messaging is the exchange of messages (i.e. specially-formatted data describing events, requests, and replies) to a messaging server, which acts as a message exchange program for client programs.
Messaging allows programs to share common message-handling code, to isolate resources and interdependencies, and to easily handle an increase in message volume. Messaging also makes it easier for programs to communicate across different programming environments (languages, compilers, and operating systems) since the only thing that each environment needs to understand is the common messaging format and protocol.
