Default Receiving MSMQ Messages


I have a separate windows application that sends a message to a message queue.

I then want a separate application to be able to check for messages in this queue. How do I do this check??

I am creating a service contract but not sure what I need to pass the message through it...

What do I need to add or change??? Thanks!!

public interface Contract
[OperationContract(IsOneWay = true, Action = "*")]
void SubmitData(string eventMessage); // pass body msg and identifier
Here is my MSMQ Watcher Class...

public class MSMQWCFServiceWatcher : EventsContract
private ServiceHost serviceHost = null;

// Event fired when a watcher finds an order
public static event EventHandler DataFound;

public void WatchForData(string server)
Uri serviceUri = new Uri("msmq.formatname:DIRECT=OS:" + server);

MsmqIntegrationBinding serviceBinding = new MsmqIntegrationBinding();

serviceBinding.Security.Transport.MsmqAuthenticationMode = MsmqAuthenticationMode.None;
serviceBinding.Security.Transport.MsmqProtectionLevel = System.Net.Security.ProtectionLevel.None;
serviceBinding.SerializationFormat = MsmqMessageSerializationFormat.Binary;
serviceHost = new ServiceHost(typeof(MSMQWCFServiceWatcher));
serviceHost.AddServiceEndpoint(typeof(EventsContract), serviceBinding, serviceUri);

public void StopWatchingForData()
if (serviceHost != null)

// Fires the OrderFound event
protected void OnDataFound(EventData data)
if (DataFound != null)
DataFound(this, new DataFoundEventArgs(data));

#region EventsContract Members
public void SubmitData(string eventMessage)
throw new NotImplementedException();
