[rabbitmq-discuss] Help with "AttributeError: 'BlockingConnection' object has no attribute 'disconnect'"

Looks like a bug. I’ve opened a ticket @ https://github.com/pika/pika/issues/435

Ultimately, you’re being disconnected from RabbitMQ which is causing pika to want to handle the disconnection cleanly, but somehow it’s missing in your version of pika.

Can you please provide the version of pika installed on the ticket?

import pika

Subject:  [rabbitmq-discuss] Help with "AttributeError: 'BlockingConnection' object has no attribute 'disconnect'"  
Hello All,


Need your help with the error I have been facing.

The channel creation (or the basic_publish operation) throws error as “AttributeError: 'BlockingConnection' object has no attribute 'disconnect'”, when there is a time gap between connection establishment and channel creation (or basic_publish operation).


I am using Pika python amqp client and running rabbitmq-server ver 3.1.3-1 on SLES-11sp3.


Python 2.6.8 (unknown, May 29 2012, 22:30:44)

[GCC 4.3.4 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 152973]] on linux2

Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.


>>> import pika

>>> VEXCHANGE = 'exchange.external'

>>> connection = pika.BlockingConnection(pika.ConnectionParameters(host='localhost',connection_attempts=3,retry_delay=5))

>>> vchannel = connection.channel();

>>> BODY = "blahblah"

>>> vchannel.basic_publish(exchange=VEXCHANGE,routing_key='#',body=str(BODY),properties=pika.BasicProperties(delivery_mode = 2,))


This message is getting published without any issues. However, if after sometime (say 5 minutes) I do basic_publish again, I get below error.


>>> vchannel.basic_publish(exchange=VEXCHANGE,routing_key='#',body=str(BODY),properties=pika.BasicProperties(delivery_mode = 2,))

No handlers could be found for logger "pika.adapters.base_connection"

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/pika/adapters/blocking_connection.py", line 540, in basic_publish

    return self._handle_error(error)

  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/pika/adapters/blocking_connection.py", line 318, in _handle_disconnect


AttributeError: 'BlockingConnection' object has no attribute 'disconnect'




At this time, I get the same error when I run

>>>vchannel = connection.channel()



The config file has the default heartbeat set to 30 seconds.


Any idea on what causing this error to come?
