Install the Stomp gem with gem install stomp.

The following code will connect to the datafeeds service, subscribe to the the RTPPM feed and print all messages to STDOUT.

To subscribe to multiple topics in a single connection, copy the client.subscribe section of code, change the topic name and the '-RTPPM' suffix

require "stomp"

class NrPollerPoller

  # Initialize the poller

  def initialize

    @hostname = ''
    @username = ''
    @password = 'topsecretpassword'

    puts "Stomp consumer for Network Rail Open Data Distribution Service"


  # Connect to the service and process messages

  def run

    client_headers = { "accept-version" => "1.1", "heart-beat" => "5000,10000", "client-id" => Socket.gethostname, "host" => @hostname }
    client_hash = { :hosts => [ { :login => @username, :passcode => @password, :host => @hostname, :port => 61618 } ], :connect_headers => client_headers }

    client =

    # Check we have connected successfully

    raise "Connection failed" unless
    raise "Unexpected protocol level #{client.protocol}" unless client.protocol == Stomp::SPL_11
    raise "Connect error: #{client.connection_frame().body}" if client.connection_frame().command == Stomp::CMD_ERROR

    puts "Connected to #{client.connection_frame().headers['server']} server with STOMP #{client.connection_frame().headers['version']}"

    # Subscribe to the RTPPM topic and process messages

    client.subscribe("/topic/RTPPM_ALL", { 'id' => client.uuid(), 'ack' => 'client', 'activemq.subscriptionName' => Socket.gethostname + '-RTPPM' }) do |msg|

      puts msg.body
      client.acknowledge(msg, msg.headers)



    # We will probably never end up here

    puts "Client close complete"
