Hazelcast provides distribution mechanism for publishing messages that are delivered to multiple subscribers, which is also known as a publish/subscribe (pub/sub) messaging model. Publish and subscriptions are cluster-wide. When a member subscribes for a topic, it is actually registering for messages published by any member in the cluster, including the new members joined after you added the listener.

Messages are ordered, meaning that listeners(subscribers) will process the messages in the order they are actually published.
