This has nothing to do with rabbit. I suggest you first try to make the 
encoding and decoding work w/o involving RabbitMQ. E.g. take the 
fileContents var from your producer and feed it into the consumer in 
place of delivery.getBody().

FWIW, the problem is that you are reading the file as a byte stream but 
writing it as an object stream.

It shouldn't be hard to find examples on the internet for how to 
read/write files into/from a byte array. Worst case ask for help in some 
Java forums or stackoverflow.

Or take a peek at the File{Producer,Consumer}.java example code that 
ships with the java client.
