IMessageRouteProvider

An implementation of the IMessageRouteProvider interface is used to obtain a list of the uris that a message should be routed to.

There are two default implementations of the interface that are used for different purposes. Should you ever require a custom mechanism to return the uris you simply provide the configuration with the relevant instance. An example may be a centrally managed database containing the routing.

Methods

GetRouteUris

IEnumerable<string> GetRouteUris(object message);

The method will return the list of uris that the message should be routed to. All qualifying routes should be added to the resulting collection of uris.

Add

void Add(IMessageRoute messageRoute);

The method will add a new IMessageRoute instance.

Implementation

DefaultMessageRouteProvider

The DefaultMessageRouteProvider obtains its configuration from the application configuration file:

    <messageRoutes>
      <messageRoute uri="msmq://./inbox">
        <add specification="StartsWith" value="Shuttle.Messages1" />
        <add specification="StartsWith" value="Shuttle.Messages2" />
      </messageRoute>
      <messageRoute uri="sql://./inbox">
        <add specification="TypeList" value="DoSomethingCommand" />
      </messageRoute>
    </messageRoutes>

Specifications

For each message route you need to specify the specification to apply to the value. The specification will determine wether the route will be added.

StartsWithMessageRouteSpecification

The StartsWithMessageRouteSpecification will include the route when the message type’s full name starts with the given value:

    <messageRoutes>
      <messageRoute uri="msmq://./inbox">
        <add specification="StartsWith" value="Shuttle.Messages1" />
      </messageRoute>
    </messageRoutes>

TypeListMessageRouteSpecification

For the TypeListMessageRouteSpecification you need to provide a list of the assembly-qualified name of the type or types (semi-colon delimited).

    <messageRoutes>
      <messageRoute uri="rabbitmq://shuttle:shuttle!@localhost/inbox">
        <add specification="TypeList" value="Shuttle.Messages1.SomeMessage, Shuttle.Message1;Shuttle.Messages2.SomeMessage, Shuttle.Message2" />
      </messageRoute>
    </messageRoutes>

RegexMessageRouteSpecification

For the RegexMessageRouteSpecification you need to provide the regex expression to apply to the full name of the type.

    <messageRoutes>
      <messageRoute uri="rabbitmq://shuttle:shuttle!@serverA/inbox">
        <add specification="Regex" value="^Shuttle\.Messages[12]" />
      </messageRoute>
    </messageRoutes>

AssemblyMessageRouteSpecification

The AssemblyMessageRouteSpecification is derived from the TypeListMessageRouteSpecification and includes all the types from the assembly represented by value. If the assembly provided by value ends with either .exe or .dll the assembly will be loaded from the given path, else the assembly will be loaded from the AppDomain (so it should be referenced).

    <messageRoutes>
      <messageRoute uri="msmq://./inbox">
        <add specification="Assembly" value="Shuttle.Messages1" />
      </messageRoute>
      <messageRoute uri="rabbitmq://shuttle:shuttle!@serverA/inbox">
        <add specification="Assembly" value="Shuttle.Messages2.dll" />
      </messageRoute>
    </messageRoutes>
