RabbitMQ - Producer Application

Now let's create a producer application which will send message to the RabbitMQ Queue.

Create Project

Using eclipse, select FileNew Maven Project. Tick the Create a simple project(skip archetype selection) and click Next.

Enter the details, as shown below −

  • groupId − com.tutorialspoint

  • artifactId − producer

  • version − 0.0.1-SNAPSHOT

  • name − RabbitMQ Producer

Click on Finish button and a new project will be created.


Now update the content of pom.xml to include dependencies for RabbitMQ.

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"    xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 https://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
   <name>RabbitMQ Producer</name>

Now create a Producer class which will send message to the RabbitMQ Queue.

package com.tutorialspoint.rabbitmq;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.Scanner;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeoutException;

import com.rabbitmq.client.Channel;
import com.rabbitmq.client.Connection;
import com.rabbitmq.client.ConnectionFactory;

public class Producer {
   private static String QUEUE = "MyFirstQueue";

   public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException, TimeoutException {
      ConnectionFactory factory = new ConnectionFactory();
      try (Connection connection = factory.newConnection();
         Channel channel = connection.createChannel()) {
         channel.queueDeclare(QUEUE, false, false, false, null);

         Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
         String message;
         do {
            System.out.println("Enter message: ");
            message = input.nextLine();
            channel.basicPublish("", QUEUE, null, message.getBytes());
         } while (!message.equalsIgnoreCase("Quit"));

Producer class creates a connection, creates a channel, connects to a queue. If user enters quit then application terminates else it will send the message to the queue using basicPublish method.

We'll run this application in RabbitMQ - Test Application chapter.
