MSMQ Agent Limitations

Service Virtualization uses Direct Format Names. MSMQ queues and hosts defined in Service Virtualization are converted, as in the following example:



Queue: private$\request.virtual.queue


The following are not supported:

  • Different authentication for different MSMQ queues. The same user is used for running the Service Virtualization Server (embedded or standalone) and for authentication of all MSMQ queues defined in virtual MSMQ services on the Service Virtualization Server.
  • ActiveX messages over MSMQ
  • MSMQ transactions
  • MSMQ journaling
  • MSMQ extensions
  • MSMQ encryption
