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.

In this chapter, we covered a lot of areas related to the integration of the RabbitMQ message broker with other types of system. The Spring AMQP and Spring integration frameworks were introduced as layers of abstraction on top of the RabbitMQ Java client libraries. Demonstrations on the use of RabbitMQ with the Mule and WSO2 ESBs were introduced following the pattern that we implemented using the Spring integration framework. We discussed how to integrate different types of database directly with the message broker and what types of adapter for other protocols the RabbitMQ broker provides. In the end, we saw how different provisioning tools provide support for RabbitMQ so that it can be deployed in a purely automated manner and how to test applications using the broker.
