I am new to NServiceBus, trying to introduce messaging into a WCF/RPC solution.
Because of architectural constraints and overhead (memory and cpu usage already high) IT Operations will not allow MSDTC. (I'm also keen to avoid 2PC fwiw). I also require messages over http so the NSB bridge looks like a great solution.
Based on these posts (how-i-avoid-two-phase-commit and extending-nservicebus-avoiding-two-phase-commits) it looks to me as though it's possible to use NSB with the DTC disabled.
It sounds like EventStore does manage to avoid 2PC in the same way that I want to setup NSB but at the moment I just want to get NSB to work rather than adding event sourcing into the mix.
- Are there any examples of configuring NSB to work this way? I'm quite happy to add the extra complexity (custom message handler with local message state storage) - without 2PC there isn't really another option. I already know of this example (IdempotentConsumer) but the test projects for this repo contain no code. It would be even more helpful if there was an example using nosql storage.
- Will I need to alter the NSB bridge to deal with no DTC? I'm guessing no - bridge transactions are only against the local queue but the process that consumes the local queue will obviously need to coded to avoid 2PC. Correct?
- Are there any other useful resources/posts around using NSB without MSDTC? The solution (how-i-avoid-two-phase-commit) seems not too complex but given I'm just starting out with NSB it would be great to find a quickstart for this...
- I would have thought this would be a common scenario - but there doesn't seem to be much written about avoiding MSDTC while still using NSB. Surely there are others who are using a message bus but aren't allowed to use MSDTC... Is there another obvious way that I've missed?
