Learning RabbitMQ

By: Martin Toshev

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.

RabbitMQ integrations

RabbitMQ provides adapters for various other types of protocol in the form of RabbitMQ plugins. Such protocols include STOMP, MQTT, HTTP, Websocket, and others. Each adapter plugin follows a common usage pattern:

  • The login information is passed in terms of the capabilities provided by the particular protocol to the RabbitMQ broker for authentication

  • SSL support is provided for most of the protocol adapter plugins

  • Adapter plugins expose TCP ports on which they accept the connection via the protocol that they implement, for example, by default, the STOMP adapter is configured to use 61613 (TCP) and 61614 (SSL), and for MQTT, these are 1883 (TCP) and 8883 (SSL)

  • Adapter plugins use a particular syntax to specify the RabbitMQ endpoint elements such as exchanges, queues, and bindings that are used when protocol messages are translated to particular operations on the broker (such as subscriptions on the sending of messages to the broker)
