RabbitMQ Exchange to Exchange Bindings [AMPQ]


The exchange-exchange binding  allows for messages to be sent/routed from one exchange to another exchange. Exchange-exchange binding works more or less the same  way as exchange-to-queue binding, the only significant difference from the surface is that both exchanges(source and destination) have to be specified.
