Subject All Fruit Except Peaches (aka: "not" expressions in binding keys)
Date Thu, 29 May 2014 20:06:44 GMT

Back in Sept 2011 Frase and Gordon had a discussion concerning negative
expressions in binding keys (

The conclusion was that it's not possible and that an xml exchange might
provide the required functionality.

I would like this feature for a topic exchange (the discussion above
concerned specifically header exchanges) and wonder if the situation is
still the same? I have not been able to find any other trace of this being

Failing the option of negative matching, a workaround I can think of is to
route all messages to a "triage" topic exchange, read all messages I
_don't_ want to a queue which will simply discard them, then use the
"alternate_exchange" option to route any remaining messages (the ones I
want) to another exchange where they can be managed as required... however
this setup seems a bit of a kludge.

Many thanks
