MSMQ Connection Manager

An MSMQ connection manager enables a package to connect to a message queue that uses Message Queuing (also known as MSMQ). The Message Queue task that Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) includes uses an MSMQ connection manager.

When you add an MSMQ connection manager to a package, Integration Services creates a connection manager that will resolve to a Message Queuing connection at run time, sets the connection manager properties, and adds the connection manager to the Connections collection on the package. The ConnectionManagerType property of the connection manager is set to MSMQ.

You can configure an MSMQ connection manager in the following ways:

  • Provide a connection string.
  • Provide the path of the message queue to connect to.

Configuring the MSMQ Connection Manager

You can set properties through SSIS Designer or programmatically.

For more information about the properties that you can set in SSIS Designer, see MSMQ Connection Manager Editor.

For information about configuring a connection manager programmatically, see ConnectionManager and Adding Connections Programmatically.
