Binding is used to establish a connection between SOA Services and their consumers. They are communication gateways to connect to the external world. They follow a well-known communication protocol that both client and service are aware of.
The two types of binding components are:
- Service Binding: used to create and expose a service to the external world. The service can contain one or more operations. Once exposed, the service can be consumed by its clients.
- Reference Binding: used to create a client that can connect and communicate to an external service.
TIBCO Business Studio supports REST as well as SOAP bindings.
