amqp-publish — Publish a message on an AMQP server

Synopsis

amqp-publish [OPTION...]

Description

Publishes a message to an exchange on an AMQP server. Options allow the various properties of the message and parameters of the AMQP basic.publish method to be specified.

By default, the message body is read from standard input. Alternatively, the -b option allows the message body to be provided as part of the command.

Options

-e, --exchange=exchange name

The name of the exchange to publish to. If omitted, the default exchange (also known as the nameless exchange) is used.

-r, --routing-key=routing key

The routing key to publish with. If omitted, an empty routing key is assumed. A routing key must be specified when publishing to the default exchange; in that case, accoding to the AMQP specification, the routing key corresponds to a queue name.

-p, --persistent

Use the persistent delivery mode. Without this option, non-persistent delivery is used.

-C, --content-type=MIME type

Specifies the content-type property for the message. If omitted, the content-type property is not set on the message.

-E, --content-encoding=content coding

Specifies the content-encoding property for the message. If omitted, the content-encoding property is not set on the message.

-b, --body=message body

Specifies the message body. If omitted, the message body is read from standard input.

Examples

Send a short message, consisting of the word “Hello” to the queue “myqueue” via the default exchange:

$ amqp-publish -r myqueue -b Hello

Send some XML data from a file to the exchange “events”, with persistent delivery mode, setting the content-type property on the message to make the data format explicit:

$ amqp-publish -e events -p -C text/xml <event.xml
