Thanks Simon. This looks like what I'm looking for. Is this userid
also enforced for the RPCClient? This doesn't seem to be working for
me. here is my code:

public class RabbitMQPublish {
	public static void main(String[] args)  throws Exception  {
			    Connection conn = null;
			    ConnectionFactory factory = new ConnectionFactory();
			    conn = factory.newConnection();
			    Channel chan = conn.createChannel();
			    BasicProperties p= new BasicProperties();
			    RpcClient rpc = new RpcClient(chan, "MyExchange", "Jobs");		
			    byte[] resp=rpc.primitiveCall(p," An interactive message".getBytes());
			    System.out.println(new String(resp));
