Interview Questions
1.What is TIBCO Certified Messaging?
TIBCO certified messaging is an approach to guarantee delivery of every message
from sender to its intended recipient. TIBCO certified messaging works on the
principle of registration and acknowledgement.
2.What is functionality of TIBCO RVD
TIBCO RVD is a background process that runs automatically to support all RV
(Rendezvous Daemon)?
3.What issome
Below are themajor
difference between
differences between TIBCO RVTIBCO RV
RV is based on TRDP/PGM Protocol while TIBCO EMS is based on
JMS protocol.
2.TIBCO RV is based on dynamic subject based messaging while TIBCO EMS
is based on static queues and topic based messaging.
3.In TIBCO RV, RVD Runs on every machine and hence it doesnt have single
point of failure. In case of EMS, EMS server is single point of failure.
4.TIBCO RV works on Bus model while TIBCO EMS works on Hub and Spoke
4.What are TIBCO Ledger files and why they
TIBCO Ledger files are used to store messages in case of RV certified messaging.
are important?
Ledger files are important as they ensure delivery of each and every message to
intended recipient in certified RV communication model in TIBCO.
Programs is difference

process terminates the ledger file is no longer
Programs that require certification that transcends process termination and program
restart can choose a file-based ledger.
Therefore, a file-based ledger preserves certified delivery information beyond transport
invalidation, or process termination and restart. A memory/process-based ledger does
not possess these characteristics.
6.What are the
Publish/Subscribe three types of RV messaging
Request/Reply Interactions.
Multicast Request/Reply interactions.
7.What is purpose of Subjects in TIBCO RV
In TIBCO Rendezvous, publish subscriber mechanism of messages works on the
basis of subjects. Messages are published on specific subjects which are then
subscribed by other processes on the same subject.
8.When we should use Reliable RV
Certified RV messaging should be used for critical messaging where delivery of each
messaging and certified messaging?
and every message is very important. Certified message delivery protocols offer
stronger assurances of delivery, along with tighter control, greater flexibility and fine-
grained reporting.
Reliable RV messaging is preferred when message sending is urgent but not critical.
9.What isService
TIBCO RV meant byPort
is the UDP service andRendezvous
number on which daemon inare
Daemon is the port number on which communication takes place between RVD
and application.
10.What is RV Storm?
TIBCO RV Storm is a situation in which TIBCO Rendezvous publisher bombards
network with publishing so many messages and exhaust all network bandwidth of
WAN links resulting in complete breakdown of network lines and communication.
11.What are the modes of TIBCO BW
GUI mode
Console mode
Silent mode
12.If you have installed a particular version of
TIBCO software e.g. TIBCO BW X.Y.Z,
Integration can be at different application layers:
are X, Y and Z number stands for?
13.What is the role of TRA?
TRA stands for TIBCO Runtime Agent.
The TRA has two main functions:
Supplies an agent that is running in the background on each machine.
The agent is responsible for starting and stopping processes that run on a
machine according to the deployment information.
The agent monitors the machine. That information is then visible via TIBCO
Supplies the run-time environment, that is, all shared libraries including third-party
14.What is vcrepo.dat?
TIBCO Designer creates a file named vcrepo.dat in the project root directory when
you first save the project. This file is used to store properties such as display name,
TIBCO Rendezvous encoding, and description. This file can be used for
identification in place of the project root directory and can be used as the repository
locator string (repoUrl).
15.What are the TIBCO BW activities that
can Not all TIBCO Business Works activities can participate in a transaction. Only the
participate in transactions?
following types of activities have transactional capabilities:
JDBC activities
JMS activities
ActiveEnterprise Adapter activities that use JMS transports
EJB activities
TIBCO iProcess BusinessWorks Connector activities
