[erlang-questions] integrating nodejs with erlang code

Hi list,

I just want to chime in my 2 cent. I have been thinking about the
communication between Erlang and other languages for a while, and of course
you can write port to do so but there are problems with them.

So I was thinking, why don't we just use a message queue system like
RabbitMQ to act as the broker in between languages. Most message queue
systems have driver for most languages. We just need to implement an RPC
over messages. And we have total control over them.

I'm probably not familiar enough with Erlang but I think it maybe a better
choice.


Sincerely,


Son Tran-Nguyen
