XML Serializer

Component: Xml Serializer
NuGet Package NServiceBus (6.x)

This sample uses the default XML serializer in the core.

Configuring to use XML

var endpointConfiguration = new EndpointConfiguration("Samples.Serialization.Xml");
// this is optional since Xml is the default serializer
// register the mutator so the the message on the wire is written
endpointConfiguration.RegisterMessageMutator(new MessageBodyWriter());

Diagnostic mutator

A helper that will log the contents of any incoming message.

public class MessageBodyWriter :
    static ILog log = LogManager.GetLogger<MessageBodyWriter>();

    public Task MutateIncoming(MutateIncomingTransportMessageContext context)
        var bodyAsString = Encoding.UTF8
        log.Info("Serialized Message Body:");
        return Task.CompletedTask;

Sending the message

var message = new CreateOrder
    OrderId = 9,
    Date = DateTime.Now,
    CustomerId = 12,
    OrderItems = new List<OrderItem>
        new OrderItem
            ItemId = 6,
            Quantity = 2
        new OrderItem
            ItemId = 5,
            Quantity = 4
await endpointInstance.SendLocal(message)


<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<CreateOrder xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns="http://tempuri.net/XmlSample">
