Thanks for the link below - I saw that section before, but now I re-read 
it and was able to get it working.


The key is to use original amqp 0.8 xml spec, not the one in qpid trunk. 
Download link is at URL that Matthias provided below.

The code below does not raise an exception. I am just starting working 
with rabbitmq and I still don't understand all details of what this code 
does, but at least it works.



QPID_PATH = '/usr/local/qpid-svn/qpid'

import sys, os, time
sys.path += [ QPID_PATH + '/python' ]

import qpid
from qpid.client import Client
from qpid.content import Content

client = Client("", 5672, spec=qpid.spec.load('amqp0-8.xml'))
client.start({ 'LOGIN': 'guest', 'PASSWORD': 'guest'})

ch = client.channel(1)
ch.queue_declare(queue="test1", exclusive=True)
ch.queue_bind(queue="test1", exchange="amq.direct", \ 

print 'Sending message "ping"...  ',
ch.basic_publish(routing_key="test_key_1", content=Content("ping"),\
print 'done'

print 'Receiving message'
t = ch.basic_consume(queue="test1", no_ack=True)
q = client.queue(t.consumer_tag)
msg = q.get(timeout=1)
print 'Got message:', msg.content.body


If anybody is interested, when this code runs against 0.8 xml spec from 
qpid trunk, here is what I get in rabbit.log:

=INFO REPORT==== 7-Sep-2007::13:45:31 ===

This is on debian etch, original 1.1.1-1 rabbitmq-server deb.
python 2.4.4
