Simple MSMQ Transport usage

Component: MSMQ Transport
NuGet Package NServiceBus (6.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");

// MSMQ is the default transport
// calling endpointConfiguration.UseTransport<MsmqTransport>() isn't necessary.

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