Applies To: Service Bus for Windows Server 1.0
The Service Bus for Windows Server is a set of installable components that provides the messaging capabilities of the Microsoft Azure Service Bus on Windows. The Service Bus for Windows Server enables you to build, test, and run loosely-coupled, message-driven applications in self-managed environments and on developer computers. Service Bus queues offer reliable message storage and retrieval with a choice of protocols and APIs. Building on the same foundation as queues, Service Bus topics provide rich publish/subscribe capabilities that allow multiple, concurrent subscribers to independently retrieve filtered or unfiltered views of the published message stream.
