Something that I think that Microsoft should include with the SQL Service Broker is an adapter so that MSMQ messages (and other messaging systems as well) will flow automatically into the SQL Service Broker. Since Microsoft hasn’t gotten around to writing one I’m going to start.
It shouldn’t be all that hard. Setup a Windows Service which reads from a predefined MSMQ and have it take the message and send it to a SQL Service Broker queue.
Then setup a Windows application that allows you to setup the config file with the source you want to read from and the SQL Service Broker objects you want to send to.
Since I have little to know experience reading from other queues I’m putting a feeler our there for some assistance on this project. Since I don’t know C#, the project will be written in VB.NET using Visual Studio 2008 on the .NET Framework v3.5.
I’ll be starting with MSMQ, and they other queuing systems as needed.
I’ve setup a project site on CodePlex. There’s not much up there at the moment, just a basic framework of the project. (Yes I know I now have two unfinished projects running, but this one will hopefully have others working on it as well.)
If you are interested in helping me out please let me know here, or on twitter, or in the discussion forum on CodePlex.
