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:

  1. Installing RabbitMQ on Ubuntu/debian and other distributions.
  2. Adding maven dependencies to the pom file of your Spring project.
  3. Create an interface definition responsible for writing to and reading from the queue.
  4. Creating a queue and exchange that will communicate between RabbitMQ and Spring.
  5. Creating the application context XML: a factory, objects, and a container.
  6. Running the code by auto-wiring the interface and creating messages. 

Check out the full tutorial for the detail code and instructions you need to get started.
