klomp

DESCRIPTION:

Klomp is a simple Stomp messaging client that keeps your sanity intact.

The purpose of Klomp is to be the simplest possible Stomp client. No in-memory buffering of outgoing messages, no fanout subscriptions in-process, no transactions, no complicated messaging patterns. Code simple enough so that when something goes wrong, the problem is obvious.

FEATURES:

The API surface area is minimal. Klomp#publish and Klomp#subscribe are your main endpoints.

klomp = Klomp.new(["127.0.0.1:61613"], "login" => "mylogin", "passcode" => "mypassword")

klomp.publish("/queue/klomp", "sanity")

# subscribe with a block that gets invoked for each message
klomp.subscribe("/queue/klomp") do |msg|
  puts msg.body # => sanity
end

# subscribe with an object that gets #call'd
class Klompen
  def call(msg)
    puts msg.body
  end
end
# replaces previous subscribe block above
klomp.subscribe("/queue/klomp", Klompen.new)
klomp.unsubscribe("/queue/klomp")

# subscribe with custom headers
klomp.subscribe("/queue/klomp", Klompen.new, :persistent => :true)
klomp.subscribe("/queue/klomp", :persistent => :true) do ... end

klomp.disconnect

Connecting

Connections are established when a Klomp object is constructed. Connections can be established in several ways.

# Pass a single string containing host:port
klomp = Klomp.new "localhost:61613"

# Authentication with 'login' and 'passcode'
klomp = Klomp.new "localhost:61613", "login" => "bob", "passcode" => "farmville"

# With a stomp:// URL
klomp = Klomp.new "stomp://bob:farmville@localhost:61613"

Load-balancing

Klomp can be used to load-balance and maintain connections to multiple broker hosts, such that if one broker goes down, the remaining broker(s) will be used. Each broker is expected to provide an identical list of queues. To ensure delivery, all Stomp clients should be connected to all brokers in the load-balancing scenario.

Publish semantics are slightly different than those for subscribe:

  • Publish: Klomp will publish each message on a randomly-selected broker.
  • Subscribe: each Klomp object subscribes to the provided queues on all hosts.

Load-balanced connections are achieved with an array of servers.

klomp = Klomp.new ["broker-001:61613", "broker-002:61613"]
klomp = Klomp.new ["broker-001:61613", "broker-002:61613"], "login" => "bob", "passcode" => "farmville"
klomp = Klomp.new ["stomp://bob:farmville@broker-001:61613", "stomp://bob:farmville@broker-002:61613"]

Virtual hosts

Klomp can use the Stomp 1.1 "virtual host" feature in several ways.

# additional name in colon-separated triple
klomp = Klomp.new "virtual-host:localhost:61613"
# host option in constructor
klomp = Klomp.new "localhost:61613", "host" => "virtual-host"
# host query parameter in stomp:// url
klomp = Klomp.new "stomp://bob:farmville@localhost:61613?host=virtual-host"

Automatic reconnect

If a Klomp connection experiences errors reading from or writing to its socket, the connection will go into an "offline" state. A sentinel thread will be started that attempts to reconnect periodically at Fibonacci back-off intervals.

Logging

Klomp accepts a Logger object in the constructor options hash.

klomp = Klomp.new "localhost:61613", "logger" => Logger.new($stdout)

Background exceptions that occur in the subscriber thread as well as offline and reconnect events will be logged at the warn level, while individual sent and received message frames will be logged at the debug level.

REQUIREMENTS / LIMITATIONS:

  • Only supports Stomp 1.1
  • Only one subscription per queue per Klomp
  • Only one handler object/block per queue. If you want to multi-dispatch a message, write your own dispatcher.
  • Only supports the following frames:
    • CONNECT/CONNECTED (initial handshake)
    • SEND
    • SUBSCRIBE
    • UNSUBSCRIBE
    • DISCONNECT
    • MESSAGE
    • ERROR
  • Not supported:
    • ACK/NACK
    • BEGIN/COMMIT/ABORT
    • RECEIPT
    • ack/receipt headers
