I'm putting together a Service Broker presentation for the local users group and hoping to submit it to a SQL Saturday as well. I would appreciate any feedback on content, phrasing, or whatever else you see that might make it better. Thanks!
SQL Server Service Broker is a messaging framework built into the SQL Server engine. It enables SQL Server to handle messaging between servers and applications with light setup and overhead. The flexibility of the framework enables Service Broker to queue event notifications, task execution requests or other messages while leveraging the strength of SQL Server transaction management, reliability and recoverability. In this session we will see how Service Broker can be used to:
--Interact with an external 3rd party application asynchronously
--Implement a low-impact audit log solution
--Scale out a task to multiple servers
--Throttle large batch processes
