Idiomatic, fast and well-maintained JRuby client for RabbitMQ

README.md

March Hare, a JRuby RabbitMQ Client

March Hare is an idiomatic, fast and well-maintained (J)Ruby DSL on top of the RabbitMQ Java client. It strives to combine strong parts of the Java client with over 4 years of experience using and developing Ruby amqp gem and Bunny.

Why March Hare

  • Concurrency support on the JVM is excellent, with many tools & approaches available. Lets make use of it.
  • RabbitMQ Java client is rock solid and supports every RabbitMQ feature. Very nice.
  • It is screaming fast thanks to all the heavy duty being done in the pretty efficient & lightweight Java code.
  • It uses synchronous APIs where it makes sense and asynchronous APIs where it makes sense. Some other Ruby RabbitMQ clients only use one or the other.
  • amqp gem has certain amount of baggage it cannot drop because of backwards compatibility concerns. March Hare is a clean room design, much more open to radical new ideas.

What March Hare is not

March Hare is not

  • A replacement for the RabbitMQ Java client
  • An attempt to re-create 100% of the amqp gem API on top of the Java client
  • A "work queue" like Resque
  • A cure for cancer

Project Maturity

March Hare is not a young project. Extracted from a platform that transports more than a terabyte of data over RabbitMQ every day, it has been around as an open source project since mid-2011 and has reached 2.0 in late 2013.

It is also based on the RabbitMQ Java client, which is an officially supported client and is considered to be a reference implementation.
