    Can Rails 4 handle multiple queues?

  9. Code School Support said

    Yes, Theo. Rails 4 can handle multiple queues, like so:

    Rails.queue[:payment_queue] = Rails.queue[:email_queue] =

    Has anyone tried to backport this new interface to Rails 3? So we can use the new interface in Rails 3 apps already and worry less about rails upgrades of our code later?

    (I tried Googling for it, but queue is such a generic term that I got too big a variety of search results)

    Good news! Although this feature didn't make the final cut for Rails 4 or 4.1, looks like it will be part of Rails 4.2 as ActiveJob

About This Screencast

Rails 4 introduces a common Queue interface, which aims to provide a standard API for working with background jobs.

Rails 3.x offers different solutions for this, but each one exposes their own custom interface. In this screencast, we will take a look at the reasoning behind Rails 4 Queues and the current state for the API.
