Contents tagged with message queue
With help from Ann, I did some simple demo programs over the last few months to try to understand RabbitMQ and message queues in general.
The code that we produced, (with a readme document) is here on github
RabbitMQ is a free, open-source cross-platform message queuing system. It is described as robust, fast and scalable though I didn’t really test those features since I just ran it on my laptop and sent a few tens of messages. In production it would run on a server, or on a dedicated cluster if a really large volume is required. It follows a standard called AMQP.
