[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ Usage Patterms?

Thank you for your explanation, although I do not really understand how
this works. 

You write: "...listening for messages arriving from RabbitMQ and
dispatching them to your application."

I have no problem writing code that is "...listening for messages
arriving from RabbitMQ". The question is, how do I dispatch these
messages to my application while letting the application run
continuously with no interruptions?

Can anybody provide sample code in python that demonstrates such a
pattern? Thanks.

A common way to go is to have a thread - or whathever your environment
calls it - running in parallel to your application code, listening for
messages arriving from RabbitMQ and dispatching them to your
