This book explores MSMQ so that you can initiate robust, asynchronous communication between applications. MSMQ provides three APIs to incorporate message queuing into different applications. These APIs include "C" from unmanaged C/C++ code; a COM component from VB or C++ code; and the System.Messaging namespace, which integrates MSMQ with managed C# or VB .NET applications.
This is the only book on the market to cover all three APIs. Plus, this book discusses the features of MSMQ 3.0 (released with Windows Server 2003), and explains sending and receiving MSMQ messages on a PocketPC device.

¿Pro MSMQ¿ is one of the only books currently out that gives an in depth overview of MSMQ. This book is basically split into two sections. One section gives some of the best information and reference material regarding the System. Messaging class for the .NET framework. The code snippets are very useful and give the reader a solid direction and foundation for extending the code to accomplish their objective using MSMQ. The other section is just as informative with regards to the Win API. I read this section, but most of my effort went into reading and using the example code from the System.Messaging section. I found the book easy to read, concise, and very helpful in ramping up on the MSMQ technology. The chapter on creating and administering MSMQ was very useful and the diagrams made it easy to follow. The book also had a chapter on deploying and administration tools for MSMQ. The code snippets are all C# but a VB.NET developer should be able to convert the code examples with little effort. This book was very helpful for me in ramping up on MSMQ in a short timeframe for a project I was working on. I would definitely recommend this book as necessary reading for anyone who will be using MSMQ and .NET framework.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

MSMQ is now in its third version and is shown here to be very stable and useful for distributed, asynchronous programming on Microsoft platforms. Those of you also familiar with the Java world will recognise MSMQ as the analog of Java Message Service. (Though this book's index contains no entries for Java or JMS.) The description of MSMQ 3 is comprehensive. The authors show how it has significant improvements over version 2. They point out that the main difference is now you have Internet Messaging. You can send and get messages via http, and refer to q queue by its URL. Very nice. An indication of how the rise of the Internet shapes our programming expectations. The book is replete with example code. In C#, naturally. But even if you don't know this language, it has good semantic keywords, so that following the logic is easy. The book is also a testament to how Microsoft is promoting C# as their core language for development. Quite reasonable, as the language has been well designed. In fact, you might regard this entire book as an important use case for C#!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
