Spring Boot and Messaging Queue - [Rabbit MQ] using Docker

RabbitMQ is an open-source message-broker software that originally implemented the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol and has since been extended with a plug-in architecture to support Streaming Text Oriented Messaging Protocol, MQ Telemetry Transport, and other protocols.

JMS[Java Message Service] is a service used to send messages between a subscriber and a publisher. The Publisher adds the message in a queue and a Subscriber[service] can access that message from the queue.

There are different Messaging services such as:-

1) Rabbit MQ
2) Active MQ
3) Feign Client
4) Kafka

We will be using Rabbit MQ for this project.

Docker is required to be installed on the machine.


1) Clone the Repo from here Click Here & run the following commands.

docker-compose up


Post a request using Postman on:-


Send this in body:-

"name" : "Sandwitch",
"qty" : 2,
"price" : 212


public class MessagingConfig {
    public Queue queue() {
         return new Queue(Constants.QUEUE);
    public TopicExchange exchange() {
        return new TopicExchange(Constants.EXCHANGE); 
    public Binding binding(Queue queue , TopicExchange exchange) {
        return BindingBuilder.bind(queue).to(exchange).with(Constants.ROUTING_KEY); 

    public MessageConverter converter() {
        return new Jackson2JsonMessageConverter();

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

public class OrderPublisher {

    private RabbitTemplate rabbitTemplate;

        public String bookOrder(@RequestBody Order order, @PathVariable String restaurantName ) {
            OrderStatus orderStatus = new OrderStatus(order, "PROCESS", "Order Successfully Placed"+ restaurantName);

            rabbitTemplate.convertAndSend(Constants.EXCHANGE,Constants.ROUTING_KEY, orderStatus);
            return "success!!"; 
} (consumer)

public class User {

    @RabbitListener(queues = Constants.QUEUE )
    public void consumeMessageFromQueue(OrderStatus orderStatus) {
        System.out.println("Message Received from queue: " +orderStatus );

Constants are defined in the class.

public class Constants {
    public static final String QUEUE = "rabbit_queue";
    public static final String EXCHANGE = "rabbit_exchange";
    public static final String ROUTING_KEY = "rabbit_routingKey";
