A new Azure Service Bus transport—but not just yet

Particular Software

Update : The new Azure Service Bus transport for.NET Standard is in preview and will be available soon. This makes it impossible for us to upgrade the NServiceBus Azure Service Bus transport you know and love to support.NET Core as is, and forces us to write a brand-new transport as well. The older WindowsAzure.ServiceBus client only supports the full.NET Framework, so there's no way our Azure Service Bus transport can support.NET Core using that.

How the Swedish Transport Agency learned distributed systems in six months

WaI vs. WaP: NYC Subway Edition

J. Paul Reed

human-factors transportationJulian Dunn tweeted out this Vox longread on the New York City subways, and the myriad reasons the MTA can’t seem to make the system run on time. As an infrastructure nerd, I found it fascinating. But as a student of human factors, this bit also stood out to me: Four years later, signal failure caused one train to rear-end another on the Williamsburg Bridge , the fourth such collision in two years. The driver died, and several dozen passengers were injured.

Remote Debugging Java Applications With JDWP


The exact way of transporting the packets is not specified and is up to the implementation to define transport mechanisms. Most Java developers have had to debug their applications, usually to find and fix an issue there. In many cases, the application to debug (known as the “debuggee” ) is launched from within the IDE used by the developer, while the debugger is also integrated into the IDE, allowing easy inspection of the program state in a step-by-step manner.

MSMQ is dead

Particular Software

The NServiceBus API gives you an abstraction away from the raw MSMQ API, making it quite a bit easier to transition to some other message transport than if you'd written directly against MSMQ to start with. The first thing you'll need to do is select an alternate message transport.

Let's talk about Kafka
