Message Switching in Networking

Message Switching is a combination of circuit switching and packet switching. Like circuit switching, the message is not broken into packets rather it is sent to the next node as a whole.
Like packet switching, no dedicated path is established between the two end parties prior to data communication. The routing decision is done at each and every node for the whole message.
