Features of RabbitMQ

When to use RabbitMQ

  • When you don’t have a clear end-to-end picture of the architecture. This is because it’s flexible and can cope with any changes in the structure.
  • Since it does not require you to change the publisher you can use it when you need to dynamically add consumers.
  • When you need to create microservices in different languages since it’s language agnostic.
  • When point-to-point interactions are complex between publish/subscribe microservices.
