What does "in Depth" have over "in Action"?

Hi,

I'm very new to RabbitMQ, but am willing to learn a little about the project. I'd love knowing why it works the way it does (not only how to get it up and running). Should I start with "in Action" before "in Depth"? What sets apart the book "RabbitMQ in Depth" from "RabbitMQ in Action"? Is there any comparison to other message passing systems? Since I'm Scala persona, how much can I learn about using RabbitMQ as a Scala developer? Is there any comparison to Akka?

Jacek

Hi there,

I think that RabbitMQ in Depth will explain more about why it does what it does than in Action does, but I guess ultimately the reader is the one who is best to make such statements.

The goal with in-Depth was to go deeper into subjects, such as how the AMQP protocol works at the low level at the outset of the book and work your way up to RabbitMQ's features and such instead of the inverse.

While the book uses Python as the example language, the goal is to make the examples and concepts very clear and easy to follow regardless of your language of choice.

I do not compare RabbitMQ to any other brokers in the book.
