Event Queue

Definition - What does Event Queue mean?

An event queue is a repository where events from an application are held prior to being processed by a receiving program or system. Event queues are often used in the context of an enterprise messaging system.

Techopedia explains Event Queue

Events waiting to be processed reside in an event queue. The term message, or messages, is sometimes used interchangeably with the term "event.”

The term is often used synonymously with messaging queue, though the precise definition slightly differs based on the exact context and technologies being used. In all instances, the common theme is that of asynchronous units awaiting processing between two applications.
