The main role of the messaging system or message transport agent (MTA) in a Web-based information system is the correct and reliable processing of applications serviced by the system in the presence of system failures. In this paper, we define a general framework for the MTA in a Web-based information systems based on the XML platform. Two important issues that need to be addressed by the MTA are (1) the message protocol to be used to ensure interoperability and (2) the technique used to ensure database consistency in processing user applications. The framework for the MTA is defined by how the two issues are addressed and we show the design of the MTA. A prototype system has been implemented based on the design.
