Dear List,

I'm probably going get dissed for posting a Java example to a Ruby
list, but I thought I'd announce the arrival of the basic.qos command
on the Ruby list first because I think that it may be of most interest
to some the Ruby based projects out there.

The idea behind the qos command is more fine grained egress flow
control, which IMHO, is relevant for applications that are doing work
distribution via AMQP.

Although the code for the article is written in Java (because the Ruby
client doesn't support the qos command), I think it would be straight
forward to draw a Rubyesque analogy.

As much as anything, it demonstrates how unreadable Java is because of
checked exceptions :-)

The article is here:
