adapts an event based non-polling listener for azure storage queues

Azure Queue listener example

To use this example, require azure-queue, instantiate a queue listener, provide it with a callback for the "message" event, and finally attach the listener to a particular queue.

var QueueListener = require('azure-queue');
var azure = require('azure');
var queuename = "myqueue";
 
var queueService = azure.createQueueService();
 
var listener = new QueueListener();
listener.on('message', function(message) {
    // watch the backoff/speedup  
    console.log("..." + Math.pow(2, listener.timeout));
 
    // at a minumum the message should be deleted  
    // otherwise it'll remain on the queue 
    // add message processing here 
    queueService.deleteMessage(queuename
                , message.messageid
                , message.popreceipt
                , function(error){
                    if(!error){
                        console.log("deleted");
                    }
                });
});
listener.listen(queuename, queueService);
