In the last couple of months I’ve been busy participating in several national and international events talking about Azure Service Bus EAI/EDI services, or as we now know: BizTalk as PaaS (BizTalk on the cloud). You can find it more information here.

There are several tools available in Windows Azure Service Bus EAI & EDI – April 2012 Release provided by Microsoft so we can quickly and easily test our solutions, two of these tools are MessageReceiver and MessageSender.

With the MessageReceiver tool, we can use it to create our Queue and receive a message:

  • MessageReceiver.exe <Your namespace> owner <Your issuer key> <Queue name> Create

The MessageSender tool is used to send messages to a deployed bridge endpoint using HTTP/REST.

  • MessageSender.exe <Your namespace> <Your issuer key> <Your endpoint> <Path to sample file> application/xml

Both tools are console application that you can execute in Windows command line (CMD), which becomes a bit boring if we are constantly testing or making presentations of these features.

Therefore to facilitate and expedite my presentations, I decided to create this “beautiful” application that joins these two tools and say goodbye to the annoying CMD.

EAI Bridge Message Sender and Queue Message Receive

EAI Bridge Message Sender and Queue Message Receive bringing together these two console application tools: MessageReceiver and MessageSender in as single Windows Form Application easily and fast to use and where we store our default values (Service Bus namespace, Issuer Name, Issuer Key) so you don’t have to constantly enter this data.
