Java CloudAMQP Sample App

Use CloudAMQP in Java from Heroku

This project illustrates how to use the Java client AMQP library to access CloudAMQP from Heroku.

It consists of one worker which listens to a queue and prints the messages to the console (and thus to the Heroku log), and a "oneoff" process which enqeues messages to that queue.

For more information on AMQP and how to use it from Java, see RabbitMQ's tutorial.

Make sure you have the Heroku Toolbelt installed. Scale the worker process, start the one-off process that enqueues messages and then inspect the log:

$ heroku ps:scale worker=1 -a your-app-name

$ heroku run "sh target/bin/oneoff" -a your-app-name
Running sh target/bin/oneoff attached to terminal... up, run.1
 [x] Sent 'Hello CloudAMQP!'

$ heroku logs -a your-app-name
