At the end of our journey in the world of RabbitMQ, we took a deep dive into the RabbitMQ components and discussed several key features such as Erlang behaviors and process supervisors that lay the basis of the message broker. We discussed what happens during the boot process of the message broker and how RabbitMQ interacts with the outside world with the Mnesia database. Alongside, we briefly covered the additional features that are provided by the RabbitMQ server. At the end of chapter, we also discussed how to write plugins for RabbitMQ.
Overview of this book
RabbitMQ is Open Source Message Queuing software based on the Advanced Message Queue Protocol Standard written in the Erlang Language. RabbitMQ is an ideal candidate for large-scale projects ranging from e-commerce and finance to Big Data and social networking because of its ease of use and high performance. Managing RabbitMQ in such a dynamic environment can be a challenging task that requires a good understanding not only of how to work properly with the message broker but also of its best practices and pitfalls. Learning RabbitMQ starts with a concise description of messaging solutions and patterns, then moves on to concrete practical scenarios for publishing and subscribing to the broker along with basic administration. This knowledge is further expanded by exploring how to establish clustering and high availability at the level of the message broker and how to integrate RabbitMQ with a number of technologies such as Spring, and enterprise service bus solutions such as MuleESB and WSO2. We will look at advanced topics such as performance tuning, secure messaging, and the internals of RabbitMQ. Finally we will work through case-studies so that we can see RabbitMQ in action and, if something goes wrong, we'll learn to resolve it in the Troubleshooting section.
