Messaging between apps
Posted on 2006-07-06
HI, i am planning to include a messaging feature in my app. So that the different users on the network using the app can send messages to each other. The messages are not instant messages, they are to be act like email which can be sent to user even when they are not on the network but the app need to alert the user when there's a new message.
I am thinking of using MSMQ for this but can i create all queues on a machine?
say...when user logs in machine A and creates a public queue on Machine B which will always be on so the queues will be accessible at any time.
Instead of checking for new messages in the background in a loop, are there any better ways to get notified when there's a new message in the queue?
