Spring AMQP 1.5.0 Release Candidate Available

Releases | Gary Russell | August 14, 2015 | ...

We are pleased to announce that the release candidate for the 1.5 release (1.5.0.RC1) is now available.

New features and improvements in this release include:

Enhanced HA Queue Support

The high availability queue support has been enhanced in that you can configure a listener container to connect to the broker that is currently the master for the container's queue. If the connection is lost, the new master is determined and a connection to that broker is established.

RabbitTemplate Blocking Receive

It is now possible to use the the RabbitTemplate to receive ad-hoc messages. Previously, only a non-blocking receive() was available.

SendAndReceive Operations (returns)

It is now possible to configure the RabbitTemplate to throw an exception while waiting for a reply if a message is returned by the broker.


The MessageListenerAdapter can be configured to invoke different methods, based on the queue the message was received from.


As a reminder, the following new features were previously announced when milestone 1 was released:

  • Class-level @RabbitListener
  • Auto-Declare Queues and Bindings for @RabbitListener
  • Configurable Exchange/Routing Key for Replies
  • RabbitManagementTemplate REST abstraction

Complete information about the contents of this release can be seen in the JIRA release notes. Also see the "what's new" section in the reference manual.

Please try out these new features and improvements; it is your last chance for feedback before the final release planned for early September, just in time for SpringOne.
