Queues are named entities within a Virtual Host that hold/buffer messages for delivery to consumer applications.
Different types of Queue have different delivery semantics. The following Queues types are currently supported:
Standard: a simple First-In-First-Out (FIFO) queue
Priority: delivery order depends on the priority of each message
Sorted: delivery order depends on the value of the sorting key property in each message
Last Value Queue: also known as an LVQ, retains only the last (newest) message received with a given LVQ key value.
Queue configuration details are covered in Chapter 9, Queues.
