Windows Azure Service Bus 2.0

The Service Bus Explorer is a tool developed available on MSDN Code Gallery that allows developers and system administrators to manage, test, debug and monitor queues, topics, subscriptions and relay services running in a Windows Azure Service Bus namespace. The new version of the tool gets advantage of the new features introduced by Windows Azure Service Bus 2.0:

  • Shared Access Signatures at the connection and entity level
  • Authorization Rules
  • Metrics and monitoring support
  • Message browsing from queues, subscriptions and dead letter queues
  • Repairing and resubmitting messages
  • AutoDeleteOnIdle support for brokered messaging entities

See the notes on the MSDN Code Gallery page for more information on the new features.
