OpenAMQ’s JMS client with RabbitMQ server

Tony Garnock-Jones wrote “OpenAMQ has released their JMS client for using JMS with AMQP-supporting brokers. This afternoon I experimented with getting it running with RabbitMQ.

Reverse HTTP == Remote CGI

Tony Garnock-Jones wrote “I’ve been working recently on Reverse HTTP, an approach to making HTTP easier to use as the distributed object system that it is.

Erlang’s GC only runs when you’re running

Tony Garnock-Jones wrote “Recently, as part of RabbitMQ server development, we ran into an interesting issue regarding Erlang’s per-process garbage collection.

Using AMQP to do cron-like scheduling

Tony Garnock-Jones wrote “Barry Pederson‘s excellent py-amqplib Python AMQP client comes with a very cute little demo, demonstrating how easy it is to do sophisticated cron-like things with AMQP and RabbitMQ.

How to run RabbitMQ’s experimental STOMP adapter

Tony Garnock-Jones wrote “The code for the experimental STOMP adapter for RabbitMQ is distributed separately from the main server, at the moment.
