I've finished the first production ready iteration v0.1 of
lua-resty-rabbitmqstomp library. I've renamed the library after concerns
from Brian;


After correct usage of cosocket api, I'm able to publish concurrently
without any errors as seen in our lab tests. The throughput rate is still
low when receipts (or confirms) are enabled due to STOMP over AMQP overhead
so we've decided to go with a different architecture which involves Redis,
message aggregation and RabbitMQ for fast and reliable messaging. For this
work, we've written a transport agent called agentredrabbit which is
already being used in our production pipelines and we are planning to
opensource it soon.
