Learning 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.

Publish-subscribe communication

The following diagram provides an overview of the scenario that we will implement:

For publish-subscribers we can use a fanout exchange and bind any number of queues to that exchange regardless of the binding key. The PublishSubscribeReceiver class can be used to bind a specified queue to a fanout exchange and receive messages from it:

import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;
import com.rabbitmq.client.Channel;
import com.rabbitmq.client.Connection;
import com.rabbitmq.client.ConnectionFactory;
import com.rabbitmq.client.ConsumerCancelledException;
import com.rabbitmq.client.QueueingConsumer;
import com.rabbitmq.client.ShutdownSignalException;

public class PublishSubscribeReceiver {

    private final static String EXCHANGE_NAME = "pubsub_exchange";
    private final static Logger LOGGER = LoggerFactory.getLogger(Sender.class);
    private Channel channel = null;
    private Connection connection = null;
