Each service can automatically access external resources using a range of protocols documented in subsequent chapters.
HTTP-based publish/subscribe offers another alternative to direct messaging between applications and is documented separately.
Some of the protocols are synchronous while communicating over the rest is performed asynchronously, in a fire-and-forget manner.

There’s nothing preventing you from accessing external resources using other transfer protocols.
You won’t have any particular support for doing so from Zato but the platform itself doesn’t disallow using any other means of communicating if you establish and maintain the connections yourself.
Do keep in mind though that Zato servers use a gevent-based main loop so TCP connections should be created in pure-Python code, preferrably, rather than in C.
