We have a requirement to build a service bus for a .NET 4.0 based application. We have been exploring several options including Windows 2008 AppFabric, WCF Routing Services, and Managed Services Engine. Here is our
Win AppFaric provides features such as HostingWF and WCF applications in IIS, Monitoring Features, and Caching Features.
It may be possible to build a simple service bus using WCF routing services
MSE is built on top of WCF 3.5 and appears to have some overlap with the above technologies
We want to better understand what problem MSE solves that Win AppFabric, and WCF routing services do not have. Does MSE have a future beyond WCF 4.0? Please advice.
