Very nice. What I have been looking for from MS products in the EAI and Service Bus area have been somewhat disappointing.
I really like the idea of Service Bus for Windows Server. I'm coming from the RabbitMQ/NserviceBus world as well as RhinoESB/MSMQ and I felt was lacking was decent instrumentation and monitoring tools. Wirth RabbitMQ I get the phenomenal UI that comes free. But I had yet to see any MS platoform product that offered something similar. This is a great step.
I'm looking to migrate some code from NServiceBus on RabbitMQ too Service Bus for Windows Server. I was hesitant at first as we are using sagas. But after reading Vastors post on "What is a Saga" I came to the conclusion that our processes are more serialized or pipe lined and the Routing Slip pattern would be fine. Now realizing that Clemons is working on or with this product I think it would be nice for him or his team to put out a sample with Service Bus for Windows Server implementing a pub/sub model with a long standing operation like a routing slip pattern.
Looks really good.
I will loading this up and giving it a shot.
