Are you someone that’s interested in using Service Broker together with WCF? If so, would you like to answer a few questions? I went surveying for SSB users at a Microsoft MVP event last night, but now is your chance to participate as well. I got to talk to five or six casual and not-so-casual SSB users, including SSB champion enthusiast Harry Pierson (second place: Jesus Rodriguez). Here are some points that I picked out where I’d like some more data.
- Are you interested in SSB because you’d like to have your service closer to the database? How close is close enough to the database?
- Are you interested in SSB because you need durable, duplex messaging between two services? Do you need exactly-once-in-order message delivery?
- Are you interested in using SSB from WCF because you want a better asynchronous messaging experience than MSMQ? What makes you prefer SSB to other queuing products?
- Are you interested in having your data contracts defined in WCF, SQL, or both?
