This intensive two-day, instructor-led course in VMware® vFabric RabbitMQ™ teaches you how to install, configure, and develop messaging applications against RabbitMQ.
The course begins with RabbitMQ installation and general configuration. It continues with developing messaging applications by using the Java APIs.
The course also addresses more advanced topics like clustering for highly available deployments and performance strategies.
Each module is accompanied by lab exercises that provide hands-on experience.

Objectives:    •  Install and configure RabbitMQ.
•  Activate and use plug-ins like the Web management console.
•  Implement messaging patterns and applications with Java.
•  Set up a cluster of RabbitMQ nodes.
•  Choose and configure an appropriate high availability configuration.
•  Tune and optimize RabbitMQ for better performance.
•  Secure RabbitMQ.
