MsgPack Serializer

NuGet Package NServiceBus.MsgPack (3.x) | License
This is a community maintained project. License and support are independent of Particular Software.
Target NServiceBus Version: 7.x

Serialize messages with the MessagePack binary format via the MsgPack.Cli project.


This serializer does not support messages defined as interfaces. If an explicit interface is sent, an exception will be thrown with the following message:

Interface based message are not supported.
Create a class that implements the desired interface

Instead, use a public class with the same contract as the interface. The class can optionally implement any required interfaces.

Custom Settings

Customizes the instance of SerializerOptions used for serialization.

var context = new SerializationContext
    DefaultDateTimeConversionMethod = DateTimeConversionMethod.UnixEpoc
var serialization = endpointConfiguration.UseSerialization<MsgPackSerializer>();

Custom content key

When using additional deserializers or transitioning between different versions of the same serializer it can be helpful to take explicit control over the content type a serializer passes to NServiceBus (to be used for the ContentType header).

var serialization = endpointConfiguration.UseSerialization<MsgPackSerializer>();
