Put a rabbit in your HTTP

I'm pleased to announce the release of http-safe, a store-and-forward HTTP gateway plugin for RabbitMQ.

Its goal is to simplify the integration and communication of services over HTTP by relieving systems from the chore of resending requests when something went wrong with "the other side".

http-safe goes beyond the fire and forget paradigm as it supports the notion of delivery callback in order to inform the originating system of the success or failure of its dispatch request.
