This article is a stub. You can help CyborgAnthropology.com by expanding it.
Event-driven architecture (EDA) is a software architecture pattern promoting the production, detection, consumption of, and reaction to events. An event can be defined as "a significant change in state". For example, when a consumer purchases a car, the car's state changes from "for sale" to "sold". A car dealer's system architecture may treat this state change as an event to be produced, published, detected and consumed by various applications within the architecture." .
