Messaging with nServiceBus

More like WCF than BizTalk, nServiceBus makes asynchronous, one-way queued messaging between services easy — and there's no server to install or maintain. Just add a reference to nservicebus.dll in your project.

Unlike a traditional RPC approach using WCF, there is no such thing as a blocking call with nServiceBus. That's because message queues are the key technology behind nServiceBus — and different adapters let you choose the specific queue implementation that makes you happy.

Based on my own experience using nServiceBus in production systems over the last 18 months, I'll present the architectural concepts behind messaging. Then we'll dive into a code example using nServiceBus to integrate three separate systems that collaborate to process and fulfill online customer orders.
