Good question, I am implementing a RPC call so the server A ask for a remote call to server B, the server A declare the queue (temp_queueA) bind it to the direct exchange and wait for reply from server B.
Server A send the request, server B gets and execute the request and sends back results using the exchange bound to the temp_queueA queue.
