The above code should work with just a little bit of tweaking:

- call the basicConsume with a QueuingConsumer
- do the txSelect outside the loop - once a channel is in tx mode it 
stays in it

Or, to put it another way, just take the code from
and add a channel.txSelect() outside the loop, and add the publishes and 
a channel.txCommit() inside the loop.
