Things to remember with MSMQ Busadapter

Thank you to the person who made me aware that the article here:

Comcom and the Bus adapter

 Misses out a couple of important things. So I will try to correct that here.


When you set up NAS to read from Microsoft Message Queues (MSMQ), using the MSMQ Bus Adapter as described in the article above, then you must remember these two things:

1)  The label on any message you send to the queue, must be "Navision MSMQ-BA". Otherwise NAS will ignore them, and they will stay in the queue. This is a way to control which messages are intented for NAS. It is a hardcoded feature, and cannot be adjusted or changed or disabled.

2)  Text in the messages must be in the format UTF-8. NAS (or any other NAV component) does not recognise UNICODE and any other format than UTF-8 can make the message unreadable.


So if everything else seems to be OK, but NAS still does not read messages from MSMQ, then check these two things.
