Queued calls are yet another way to achieve reliability in a distributed system. When you send messages using a classic request/reply pattern, the response traditionally indicates whether the request was successful. In the case of one-way messages, it is difficult to be sure that the message arrived at its destination and was process successfully because no response is provided. By definition, with one-way calls, you probably care less about the success of the call (given that there is not a reply), but you do care that the message arrived. Unlike reliable the sessions discussed earlier in our series, queued calls make it possible not only to improve system performance by offloading work to another thread or computer, but also to guarantee arrival of a message and that the message will not be lost, since it can be stored in a durable message queue. In this webcast, we show you how to expose Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services over Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ), demonstrate practical scenarios where queued services can be helpful, and explain various configuration settings for NetMsmqBinding and their implications on system reliability and security.
