RabbitMQis one of the open source message brokers or queue manager software, which uses Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP). It implements a broker architecture, meaning that messages are queued on a central node called Exchange before being sent to clients. This approach makes RabbitMQ very easy to use and deploy. RabbitMQ can be deployed in distributed environments to meet high-scale, high-availability requirements.
The Message Flow in RabbitMQ
Integrating RabbitMQ with Mule and publishing an Employee Details onto a queue using RabbitMQ.
- Mule Anypoint Studio.
- RabbitMQ server and server details.
To Integrate RabbitMQ with Mule, you need to have AMQP connector installed in Anypoint studio. So, first, download and install AMQP connector from the Anypoint exchange. Once the connector is installed, you can find all the endpoints and transformers related to AMQP in Mule Palette section.
Unlike other connectors, AMQP connector does not have connector configuration available in the connector to configure the connection details. So, we have to create a connection in global elements, and from there, the connector picks the connection details.
Note: Unlike ActiveMQ it will not create a queue if it is not present. One should provide the name of the queue which is already present in the server queues.
Once this done, deploy the application in the Anypoint studio. Once the application is deployed successfully, invoke the rest service. In my case, I am posting the employee details to the rest service.
