False: The RabbitMQ Java client is just a pure Java library that speaks
the AMQP wire protocol. Nothing Erlang-ish needs to be on the machine with
Defining a language agnostic wire protocol and command set is one of AMQP's
strengths, and a key reason why it makes polyglot systems, such as in your
case a Java client application talking to a message broker, RabbitMQ, that
happens to be written in Erlang, viable.

No, as per my prior paragraph, so there's less work for you to do.

It's just a plain old JAR file. You can drop it on your classpath however
you like, and pull it into your project via Maven, Ivy, SBT or the like
from a suitable repository, etc.
