GUI for Sql Server Service Broker
SQL Server Service Broker (SSB) is in my mind one of the coolest features of SQL Server 2005, and I have done quite a lot with it. What is most frustrating with it though is the lack of GUI. In other words, to use it – you have to create all your objects in scripts.
So, a while ago – quite a long time ago as a it was, I thought that I should create an application which would help me with creation/management of SSB objects. This application is SSB Admin (I should have called it SSB Explorer, but Dan already took that name).
SSB Admin is a GUI application for managing and creating SQL Server 2005 Service Broker (SSB) Objects on networked SQL Server 2005 Servers. Some of the features of the product are:
- Viewing networked SQL Server 2005 instances and their SSB objects.
- Creating new SSB objects through a GUI.
- Deploying SSB Objects to other instances/databases than where they originally were created.
- Sending messages between services and on conversations.
- View messages.
If anyone is interested in testing it, you can download it from here.
