Any large application needs an efficient way to handle the constant messages passing between components in the system. Billed as "messaging that just works," the RabbitMQ message broker initially appeals to developers because it's lightweight, easy to set up, and low maintenance. They stick with it because it's powerful, fast, and up to nearly anything that can be thrown at it. This book takes readers beyond the basics and explores the challenges of clustering and distributing messages across enterprise-level data-centers using RabbitMQ.

RabbitMQ in Depth is a practical guide to building and maintaining message-based systems. This book covers detailed architectural and operational use of RabbitMQ with an emphasis on not just how it works but why it works the way it does. It provides examples and detailed explanations of everything from low-level communication to integration with third-party systems. It also offers insights needed to make core architectural choices and develop procedures for effective operational management.KEY FEATURES
