Thank you!  :)

Couple of more questions:

- What kind of formats do people use for their messages?  XML? JSON? Other?   I need to pass less than 1KB of data made up of Text, Dates, Numbers, etc.

- How would I integrate a UI (web app in my case) on top of a system that uses RabbitMQ for back-end processing.  I mean to say: If the UI submits an "add customer" message to the RabbitMQ server to be routed to a worker, how does the worker / RabbitMQ respond back to the UI with a success, fail (or even no-worker available / timeout) message?
