Implemented exactly as described there, it yields an infinite loop for
unprocessable messages. You might therefore also want to keep a count of
the number of processing attempts in a header on the message, and more
thoroughly reject messages which reach some maximum number of attempts.
I think you could do the final rejection by setting a routing key on the
message when you reject it for the last time, and having exchange B be a
direct exchange which routes to either queue B or some final deadletter
If you want exponential backoff in the retries, then life gets more
complicated (multiple timeout queues, selected between by a routing key
set by the consumer of A?). We are currently pussyfooting around this
issue at my company. I will report back here if we ever implement a good
