SQL Service Broker isn’t going anywhere.

All to often when I give a SQL Service Broker presentation, or when I’m talking to people about it they want to know what the odds are that SQL Service Broker will be removed from the platform like how Notification Services was ripped from the product after just one release.

So here’s just some of the SQL Server features which would need to be re-architected if SQL Service Broker was removed from the SQL Server product.

  • Database Mail – Introduced in SQL Server 2005
  • Database Mirroring – Introduced in SQL Server 2005
  • Always On (HADR) – Introduced in SQL Server “Denali”

There is some other stuff which uses SQL Service broker, mainly BizTalk can use it, and I’ve heard rumors that Microsoft CRM will start using it at some point (if it doesn’t already).  I’m sure based on the way the SQL Server product team has been going that even more new features will be based on SQL Service Broker.

So if you were worried about using SQL Service Broker because you’ve heard that not many people are using it, don’t be. The feature isn’t going anywhere.

    Agreed Denny. From what I understand, even though the public adoption rate may be relatively low, Service Broker provides some internal plumbing required for other features/products. Probably a pretty safe bet that it'll remain in the product.
