We deal with HTTP based APIs for many of our common interactions between services and system components. Not all services we want to communicate with use HTTP, and when confronted with a service that doesn’t use it, getting started can be intimidating. In this talk, we’ll use RabbitMQ Streams as our example service and cover all of the design and implementation considerations needed to work with a non-HTTP API.
