I'm sorry if this has been covered already.  A quick search of the
mailing list archives and RabbitMQ website didn't turn up any answers
for my specific question.

I'd like a way for a server to push back one to many events to a
client, over HTTP, without that client listening on a non-firewalled
port.  (The client can only make outbound connections through a
firewall.)  basically, the client should be able to connect to the
server, observe the server, tell the server to do something, and receive
notifications about how that 'something' is going.  Both the client and
server will be written in JVM languages.

I need - more or less - a 70s-style socket with (ideally) higher-level
support from RabbitMQ for things like reliable delivery, message
serialization, etc.

Bonus points for being able to runnel over HTTP and deploy in recent
(but not Servlet API 3.0-capable) app servers like Tomcat 6.

Can RabbitMQ do what I need?
