Dear Rabbit users,
AMQP's basic.publish method has two flags - mandatory and immediate -
that trigger checks at the server and result in messages getting
returned to clients with basic.return when the necessary conditions
aren't met. See
http://www.rabbitmq.com/amqp-0-9-1-reference.html#basic.publish for the
I can just about see why 'mandatory' may be useful, but 'immediate' has
always struck me as a bizarre and I fear that anybody using it may well
do so w/o fully understanding the semantics - can't blame them, it *is*
bizarre. Because of that, and since it complicates the code in many
places, we are considering dropping support for 'immediate'.
So is anybody actually using the 'immediate' flag?
