JavaScript, Ruby, and Java Banyan Frameworks

There are versions of the Banyan Framework available for JavaScript, Ruby, Java.

Banyan components can be written with any of these frameworks, and the components can be combined into a single Banyan application.

Below is the simple echo server rewritten using the JavaScript Banyan Framework.

const BanyanBase = require('js-banyan/lib/banyan_base');

class SimpleEchoServer extends BanyanBase {

    constructor() {

        super({ processName: 'SimpleEchoServer'


    incoming_message_processing( topic, payload) {
        console.log('Message number:', payload['message_number']);
        this.publish_payload(payload, 'reply');
try {
    new SimpleEchoServer();

Compare it to the Python version, and you can easily see how similar they are.

To run the example, first start the Backplane (it can be any of the Backplanes - Python, JavaScript, Ruby or Java), then start the JavaScript server:

node simple_echo_server.js

and finally start the Python client. The application runs as if it was written for a single platform.

No changes to the protocol messages or the code are necessary. The components, in conjunction with any of the Backplanes, create a cohesive, seamless application.
