Simple MSMQ Transport usage

Component: MSMQ Transport
NuGet Package: NServiceBus.Transport.Msmq (1.x)
Target Version: NServiceBus 7.x


Ensure that MSMQ has been installed.

Code walk-through

This sample shows basic usage of MSMQ as a transport for NServiceBus. The application sends an empty message to itself, via the MSMQ transport, and writes to the console when the message is received.


var endpointConfiguration = new EndpointConfiguration("Samples.Msmq.Simple");
var transport = endpointConfiguration.UseTransport<MsmqTransport>();

Other settings such as DeadLetterQueue, Journal behavior, etc., can also be configured via the connection string.
