First off, I’m really new to all this messaging stuff, so please excuse what might be a dumb question!
We have a WPF application, used by people all over the world, and data is accessed via WCF services. We want to allow the server to inform the client when data has changed (eg, user Jim modifies a customer, we want everyone else to know about the change).
I was looking at the publish/subscribe demo, as that looks to be what we want. In our case, when a WCF service call was made, the server could publish a message, and the WPF apps that subscribed to it would pick it up.
We would be interested in doing this using NServiceBus on top of MSMQ.
My main question is, does this require MSMQ to be installed on the client machine? Installing it on the server is no problem, but I can’t imagine how we’re going to get it installed on all the client machines.
If it does have to be installed, is there any other way of having the clients pick up the messages?
Thanks for any help you can give.
