A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat AMQ

Chapter 4. Examples

This chapter demonstrates the use of AMQ Ruby through example programs.

4.1. Sending messages

This client program connects to a server using <connection-url>, creates a sender for target <address>, sends a message containing <message-body>, closes the connection, and exits.

Example: Sending messages

require 'qpid_proton'

class SendHandler < Qpid::Proton::MessagingHandler
  def initialize(conn_url, address, message_body)
    super()

    @conn_url = conn_url
    @address = address
    @message_body = message_body
  end

  def on_container_start(container)
    conn = container.connect(@conn_url)
    conn.open_sender(@address)
  end

  def on_sender_open(sender)
    puts "SEND: Opened sender for target address '#{sender.target.address}'\n"
  end

  def on_sendable(sender)
    message = Qpid::Proton::Message.new(@message_body)
    sender.send(message)

    puts "SEND: Sent message '#{message.body}'\n"

    sender.close
    sender.connection.close
  end
end

if ARGV.size == 3
  conn_url, address, message_body = ARGV
else
  abort "Usage: send.rb <connection-url> <address> <message-body>\n"
end

handler = SendHandler.new(conn_url, address, message_body)
container = Qpid::Proton::Container.new(handler)
container.run

Running the example

To run the example program, copy it to a local file and invoke it using the ruby command.

$ ruby send.rb amqp://localhost queue1 hello

4.2. Receiving messages

This client program connects to a server using <connection-url>, creates a receiver for source <address>, and receives messages until it is terminated or it reaches <count> messages.

Example: Receiving messages

require 'qpid_proton'

class ReceiveHandler < Qpid::Proton::MessagingHandler
  def initialize(conn_url, address, desired)
    super()

    @conn_url = conn_url
    @address = address

    @desired = desired
    @received = 0
  end

  def on_container_start(container)
    conn = container.connect(@conn_url)
    conn.open_receiver(@address)
  end

  def on_receiver_open(receiver)
    puts "RECEIVE: Opened receiver for source address '#{receiver.source.address}'\n"
  end

  def on_message(delivery, message)
    puts "RECEIVE: Received message '#{message.body}'\n"

    @received += 1

    if @received == @desired
      delivery.receiver.close
      delivery.receiver.connection.close
    end
  end
end

if ARGV.size > 1
  conn_url, address = ARGV[0..1]
else
  abort "Usage: receive.rb <connection-url> <address> [<message-count>]\n"
end

begin
  desired = Integer(ARGV[2])
rescue TypeError
  desired = 0
end

handler = ReceiveHandler.new(conn_url, address, desired)
container = Qpid::Proton::Container.new(handler)
container.run

Running the example

To run the example program, copy it to a local file and invoke it using the ruby command.

$ ruby receive.rb amqp://localhost queue1
