MSMQ Overview

SOLIDWORKS Workgroup PDM Triggers relies on Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) technology, which allows loosely coupled systems to interact.

MSMQ defines mail queues, analogous to a cubbyhole, whereby an application sends an XML-formatted message to a location without knowing or caring what application finally reads it. A second application can pick up the message, read its contents, and perform processing based on the contents.

You can implement MSMQ custom applications as complete Windows services or as simple scripts or executables using Windows Scheduled Tasks. You can also implement them via MSMQ Trigger framework, which you can download from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms811052.aspx.

MSMQ is available on Windows XP® and Windows Server 2003® platforms.
