Spring Boot Messaging Queue RabbitMQ using AMQP

Spring Boot RabbitMQ using AMQP

Below example configures the messaging queue between the sender and the listener. In the example, the scheduler sends the message to the queue every 3 seconds which will be pulled by the Listener class.

The implementation is in the Spring Boot.

AMQP is a protocol that defines communication between systems.

Project Setup
1) pom.xml - Defines the entry for Spring Boot AMPQ library

2) Sender.java - This class uses a scheduler implementation that pushes the message into the queue every 3 seconds. RabbitTemplate class helps sending the message to the Listener. It pushes the message into the queue.
package com.accenture.springmessage;

import org.springframework.amqp.rabbit.core.RabbitTemplate;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.scheduling.annotation.Scheduled;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Service;

public class Sender {

 private final RabbitTemplate rabbitTemplate;

 public StoryEnsRequestSender(final RabbitTemplate rabbitTemplate) {
  this.rabbitTemplate = rabbitTemplate;

 @Scheduled(fixedDelay = 3000L)
 public void sendMessage() {
  String message = "Hello";
  System.out.println("Send Message - " + message);
  rabbitTemplate.convertAndSend(App.EXCHANGE_NAME, App.ROUTING_KEY, message);

3) Listener.java - This class uses the @RabbitListener annotation that fetches the message from the queue. The queue is identified using the queue names attribute.
package com.accenture.springmessage;

import org.springframework.amqp.rabbit.annotation.RabbitListener;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Service;

public class Listener {

 @RabbitListener(queues = App.QUEUE_SPECIFIC_NAME)
 public void receiveMessage(final String customMessage) {
  System.out.println("Received message - " + customMessage.toString());

4) App.java - Configuration class to define the queue name, exchange name and routing key. Class must implement RabbitListenerConfigurer and below annotations are used @SpringBootApplication, @EnableScheduling, @EnableRabbit.
Enable Rabbit annnotation is used to enable the rabbit configuration.
Enable Scheduling pushes the message in the queue every 3 seconds.

package com.accenture.springmessage;

import org.springframework.amqp.core.Binding;
import org.springframework.amqp.core.BindingBuilder;
import org.springframework.amqp.core.Queue;
import org.springframework.amqp.core.TopicExchange;
import org.springframework.amqp.rabbit.annotation.EnableRabbit;
import org.springframework.amqp.rabbit.annotation.RabbitListenerConfigurer;
import org.springframework.amqp.rabbit.connection.ConnectionFactory;
import org.springframework.amqp.rabbit.core.RabbitTemplate;
import org.springframework.amqp.rabbit.listener.RabbitListenerEndpointRegistrar;
import org.springframework.amqp.support.converter.Jackson2JsonMessageConverter;
import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Bean;
import org.springframework.messaging.converter.MappingJackson2MessageConverter;
import org.springframework.messaging.handler.annotation.support.DefaultMessageHandlerMethodFactory;
import org.springframework.scheduling.annotation.EnableScheduling;

 * Hello world!
public class App implements RabbitListenerConfigurer {
 public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {
  SpringApplication.run(App.class, args);

 public static final String EXCHANGE_NAME = "appExchange";
 public static final String QUEUE_SPECIFIC_NAME = "appSpecificQueue";
 public static final String ROUTING_KEY = "messages.key";

 public TopicExchange appExchange() {
  return new TopicExchange(EXCHANGE_NAME);

 public Queue appQueueSpecific() {
  return new Queue(QUEUE_SPECIFIC_NAME);

 public Binding declareBindingSpecific() {
  return BindingBuilder.bind(appQueueSpecific()).to(appExchange()).with(ROUTING_KEY);

 public RabbitTemplate rabbitTemplate(final ConnectionFactory connectionFactory) {
  final RabbitTemplate rabbitTemplate = new RabbitTemplate(connectionFactory);
  return rabbitTemplate;

 public Jackson2JsonMessageConverter producerJackson2MessageConverter() {
  return new Jackson2JsonMessageConverter();

 public MappingJackson2MessageConverter consumerJackson2MessageConverter() {
  return new MappingJackson2MessageConverter();

 public DefaultMessageHandlerMethodFactory messageHandlerMethodFactory() {
  DefaultMessageHandlerMethodFactory factory = new DefaultMessageHandlerMethodFactory();
  return factory;

 public void configureRabbitListeners(final RabbitListenerEndpointRegistrar registrar) {

5) Output
