Big thanks Emile for her overview. It's sad as I really hoped to find easier
solution for mobile devices and still haven't found any... I have not so
much experience with amqp or Compact framework as it would be worth to me to
experiment trying it make changes in source code of rabbit client to work in
Compact framework. :(
Do anybody knows/tried any other solution for guarantied push messaging that
would work in Windows Mobile / Embedded (preferred with .NET Compact
My minimum requirement is to have client which could subscribe to queue and
get guaranteed push messages.

I've tried to get an overview of how hard it would be to get the RabbitMQ
.NET client to compile using only the Compact Framework library. Here are
some of the hurdles:
SSL-related classes, methods and parameters in AmqpTcpEndpoint don't exist
A few exceptions assume members that don't exist in the CF
AppDomain uploading and use of reflection in ConnectionBase will need to be
Buffered streaming (in SocketFrameHandler) doesn't exist
ConfigurationSettings in Protocols is missing
UTF8 encoding and decoding in WireFormatting will need to be done
Threading primitives in SharedQueue don't exist.
I get the sense that porting the .NET client to Compact Framework is not
impossible, but not a trivial undertaking. I'm not aware of anyone else
having attempted this.
