Thanks Emile,

I find a lot of assistance in your answers.
I do use the RPC the way you mentioned and multiple clients do connect.
but my problem is that sometimes - a new client cannot connect .

While investigating this problem I found that one of the server RPC queues
was deleted. and when the client tries to connect to it, it halts when

How come?
I have 2 RPC queues for different services/ I declare them both in the same
way - declaring both queues for the rpcserver with this line

      ch.queueDeclare(QueueName, false,false,true,null)

(obviously giving  different names in the first parameter for the different
queues.. )
But only the first queue is sometimes deleted.
I have tried to see if it happens when the last client is shut down but it
is not related.
1. When do you think it could happen?
2. Should I declare it in another way? Like changing the third parameter -
autodelete to false?
(  though it should never be deleted because the server app is still holding
a handle to it, no?)
Any hints would be highly appreciated.
