Thank you for your interest in this port of RabbitMQ, an implementation of the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) specification.

The kit includes a rabbitmq.config file which you are advised to peruse and ensure you include in your RabbitMQ startup parameters! See the release notes for further information.

We have improved (we hope) the documentation and included one or two examples for testing the installation using the Java programs supplied by RabbitMQ. These allow for the simple testing of the installation through to high-volume testing. They are also excellent tools for learning both the product and the AMQP protocol.

RabbitMQ provides a robust and flexible messaging platform that has been designed from the ground up to interoperate with other messaging systems. It is the leading (and arguably the most popular) implementation of AMQP, the open standard for business messaging, and, through adapters, supports protocols such as XMPP, SMTP, STOMP, and HTTP for lightweight web messaging.

The RabbitMQ server is written in Erlang ( and is built on the Open Telecom Platform (OTP) framework for clustering and failover. The authors believe that the high availability and functional characteristics of Erlang/OTP make it ideally suited to use in an OpenVMS environment, and by inference the same may be said for RabbitMQ. See the Erlang on OpenVMS blog for kit announcements and so forth.
