RabbitMQ in Action: Distributed Messaging for Everyone (Paperback)

Alvaro Videla, Jason J. W. Williams




There's a virtual switchboard at the heart of most large applications, where millions of messages and requests need to be routed to and from the servers, programs, and services that make up the system. RabbitMQ is an efficient, highly scalable, and easy-to-deploy queue that makes handling this message traffic virtually effortless. Offered under an open source license and language neutral, RabbitMQ integrates seamlessly into applications written in C++, Java, Python, Erlang, and other standard languages.

RabbitMQ in Action is a fast-paced run through building and managing scalable applications using the RabbitMQ messaging server. It starts by explaining how message queuing works, its history and how RabbitMQ fits in. Then it shows real-world examples developers can apply to their own scalability and interoperability challenges.
