[rabbitmq-discuss] SocketException when invoking model.BasicPublish

Hi Michael, had to decompile RabbitMQ.Client assembly and step through to
find the issue.  Apparently, my code doesn't always pass a non-null
messageId.  Setting a null messageId on the basicproperties is allowed but
the writing of a null messageId on the wire will cause an error inside
of RabbitMQ.Client.  So moral of the story is don't ever set a
basicproperties property unless it's non null (at least as of
RabbitMQ.Client 3.3.0).

I put connection and channel logic back in the same method and it works
great.   Here is new working version.

private void PublishMessage(byte[] message, Type messageType, string
contentType, string messageId)
            if (message == null || message.Length == 0)
                throw new ArgumentNullException("message");
            if (messageType == null)
                throw new ArgumentNullException("messageType");
            if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(contentType))
                throw new ArgumentNullException("contentType");
 //            if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(messageId))
//            {
//                throw new ArgumentNullException("messageId");
//            }
            var factory = new ConnectionFactory() {VirtualHost =
this.VirtualHost, HostName = this.Host, UserName = this.User, Password =
this.Password };
            using (var connection = factory.CreateConnection())
            using (var channel = connection.CreateModel())
                IBasicProperties props = channel.CreateBasicProperties();

                //Mime time
                props.ContentType = contentType;
                props.Type = messageType.FullName;
                if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(messageId))
                    //Must be careful not to set IBasicProperties with
possible null value as this will cause serialization errors downstream
(RabbitMQ.Client 3.3.0)
                    props.MessageId = messageId;
                //Note, may get AlreadyClosedException here if publishing
to a incorrect exchange name
                channel.BasicPublish(this.ExchangeName, this.RoutingKey,
props, message);

thanks for the help.
