[rabbitmq-discuss] Calling AS/400 service programs via RabbitMQ

I'm trying to document as much of what we're doing here at NPC as possible. If I can't release source code, I'm trying to do the next best thing and explain what we're doing.

In trying to make the AS/400 a first-class member of our cloud architecture, we need to open up the RPG-language service programs to other callers via RabbitMQ, so any language that has a client binding can call RPG programs. I wrote a generic MessageRouter (that isn't OpenSource, unfortunately) that handles incoming messages and dispatches them to RPG service programs.

I've tried to lay out the process in a new blog post:

I don't know how many people are actually using RabbitMQ in conjunction with the AS/400, but I hope this is helpful, nonetheless...
