In my last article, I introduced the Application Bus pattern, a specialization of the Message Bus pattern. I’m employing an Application Bus in RageFeed, the hobby social networking application I sometimes work on. Today, I’ll show you how the bus utilizes StructureMap for locating message end points and for dispatching messages. I’ll also explain why I chose to build my own bus instead of leveraging an existing one, such as the bus available in MVCContrib.
