AMQP: From Concept To Code
Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) is a new way of looking at messaging that is quickly gaining in popularity and use, particularly in the financial services industry. Unlike JMS, which defines a standard API across platforms, AMQP defines a standard wire-level protocol across languages and platforms, finally making true cross-platform messaging a reality. In this session I will start by describing exactly what AMQP is and what problems it specifically solves (that JMS can't!). I will then describe the basic architecture and how AMQP routes messages, and then, through live interactive coding, demonstrate how to build a simple producer and consumer using RabbitMQ to send and receive AMQP messages. We will also take a brief look at other aspects of AMQP such as performance and how to guarantee that the message reaches a consumer.
Agenda: - What is AMQP and what problems does it solve? - How AMQP works: exchanges, bindings, queues, and routing - AMQP exchange types - AMQP message structure - AMQP Performance characteristics - Sending and receiving messages using RabbitMQ - How to guarantee message delivery in AMQP
Prerequisite: basic knowledge of general messaging
