After the introduction of the Service Bus, we agreed that they are divided into 2 different types the Relay Messaging and the Brokered Messaging and here are the differences between them. In this post or application associated to it, we are going in more depth in it, we now understand the main functionalities that will be used in developing an application using the Brokered Messaging API and have seen how the code can be done with Brokered Messaging whether with queues or Topic & Subscription.

To create the Windows Azure Service Bus on the Windows Azure account you can read this blog post describing how to do it.

Now starting to work with the development, there are few things that you have to put in consideration like working with Service Bus doesn’t mean that you have to build Cloud or Windows Azure application, remember that Service Bus is a messaging platform where it can connect multiple application together no matter where they are hosted.

As previously described in a previous blog post, Building your first Service Bus Brokered Messaging using Queue. I am not willing to write the same code again, however I just want to clarify that this type of messaging is like the queue storage that is used to connect both the WebRole and the WorkerRole in Windows Azure Cloud Services. However the Service Bus Brokered Messaging using queues also connects multiple roles together, with certainly some differences between them, you can find them here.

you can find all the content and more details in the following blog:

Here is a complete guide for the Windows Azure Service Bus Libraries, the Microsoft.ServiceBus & the Microsoft.ServiceBus.Messaging, they are based on the .Net SDK 1.8 Version.
