Yesterday I referenced a new MSDN whitepaper that does a “cage match” analysis between Azure Queues and Service Bus Queues. While we’re on the topic of the Windows Azure Service Bus and “What is it good for?”, I thought I’d share a reference to a new demo my colleague Brian Loesgen put together:
Brian has been working on this demo and enhancing it over the past year. A version of it was even included in Tony Guidici’s Windows Azure Platform book. The demo has several resources associated with it, including video walkthroughs and the complete source code:
- High def video walkthrough: https://youtu.be/xKHl87_BFT0
- Low def video walkthrough: https://youtu.be/c3KLhsjstco
- Complete source code, http://servicebuseventdemo.codeplex.com/
What does the demo do? From Brian…
At a high level, the scenario is that this is a system that listens for events, and when critical events occur, they are multicast to listeners/subscribers through the Azure Service Bus. The listeners use the Service Bus relay bindings, the subscribers use the topical pub/sub mechanism of the Service Bus.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
