We've recently learned about deploying a RabbitMQ cluster on Google Compute Engine, and we also explored a few of the best message brokers (which definitely includes RabbitMQ). RabbitMQ has become a particularly popular message broker due to its high-volume and low-latency structure, and is primarily used for integrating between application components.
I recently came across a tutorial for getting started with RabbitMQ using Spring Framework. The tutorial assumes you already have a Spring-based project up and running, and probably many readers will, so it's still pretty useful to see how it'll work. The steps include:
- Installing RabbitMQ on Ubuntu/debian and other distributions.
- Adding maven dependencies to the pom file of your Spring project.
- Create an interface definition responsible for writing to and reading from the queue.
- Creating a queue and exchange that will communicate between RabbitMQ and Spring.
- Creating the application context XML: a factory, objects, and a container.
- Running the code by auto-wiring the interface and creating messages.
