Need an AMQP client command line tool
Last modified: 2015-11-15 19:05:55 EST
We have APIs for AMQP client operations, but we don't have a command line
interface for performing such operations from a shell environment.
I propose we introduce something like the following. This is just a braindump,
so I invite your comments.
$ qpid-client queue.declare --name q0 --durable
$ qpid-client exchange.declare --name e0
$ qpid-client queue.bind --name q0 --exchange e0 --binding-key a.b.c
$ qpid-client message.transfer ...
qpid-client <class>.<method> <arg0>...<argN>
This tool would speak AMQP and nothing else. It should probably be written in
C++, to avoid extra dependencies in restricted deployments.
The wiring commands are the first priority, since they are needed by JMS users.
qpidc-0.2.656926-1.el5 and qpidd-0.2.656926-1.el5 have been pushed to the staging repo for testing
Tools qpid-config, qpid-tool (and qpid-route, ...) serve for those purposes (python-qpid package).
Implemented as of 21st June 2009 and going to be in MRG 1.1.1 release:
python-qpid-0.5.752581-1.el5 and python-qpid-0.5.760500-2.el4
