TIBCO FTL® is a robust, high-performance messaging platform for real-time, high-throughput data distribution to virtually any device. Optimized to leverage the latest advancements in hardware, networking and web technologies, TIBCO FTL can handle higher message throughput with lower latencies – and a greater number of concurrent connections – than other messaging products. All of this is delivered with a peer-to-peer architecture and API libraries that run on commodity, general purpose systems with no specialized hardware devices required.

Fast application development

Developers can just focus on information sharing because they don’t have to mess with a lot of the normal details (connections, formats, transports). Plus, much of this plumbing can be changed on-the- fly through administration, outside of the applications, which also saves a lot of time.

Simplified administration

There's more than raw speed here. Centralized management streamlines an administrator’s job. Other features make for fast maintenance and reduced downtime.

Low total cost of ownership

Plug TIBCO FTL into your existing environment and start creating high-speed systems. It natively integrates with other TIBCO messaging products (TIBCO eFTL, TIBCO Rendezvous, and TIBCO Enterprise Message Service) and comes packaged with the components you need to take advantage of its speed and the services it enables. Additionally, lower costs result through fast development and easy administration.

TIBCO FTL Feature Videos

Want to see some of what's new in TIBCO FTL?  We'll be creating to the point videos showing important features and capabilities as they happen.

TIBCO FTL Concept Videos

Some things are just better seen than read about.  To help illustrate key FTL concepts, we're embarking on an effort to create a series of short videos focused on a specific topic.  Concise, to the point, and not boring - we'll make them worth your time.

TIBCO FTL Tutorials

The FTL Tutorials provide a lesson-by-lesson, step-by-step series of focused topics taking you from FTL basics through to advanced FTL concepts.  Rather than offer an exhausting and boring review of a single area like the API, the lessons take a practical and actionable approach working through FTL on a broad front.  You'll learn basic concepts, API usage, configuration (via the web-based UI and the REST interface), moving into more advanced topics, and going all the way through to the output from the tutorial applications and using the monitoring capabilities available in FTL to see how the resulting code is actually operating in the context of the messaging system.

You'll find tutorials avaialble for the latest TIBCO FTL 6.x releases as well as for the TIBCO FTL 5.x Releases.


FTL examples, best practices, and informational postings focused on specific topics or goals.  We've got a number of items up with more in the way.
