What is AMQP?
AMQP Advanced Message Queuing Protocol is an open standard designed to support reliable, high-performance messaging over the Internet. AMQP can be used for any distributed or business application, and supports common messaging paradigms like point-to-point, fanout, publish-subscribe, and request-response.
Apache Qpid implements AMQP, including transaction management, queuing, clustering, federation, security, management and multi-platform support.
Apache Qpid implements the latest AMQP specification, providing transaction management, queuing, distribution, security, management, clustering, federation and heterogeneous multi-platform support and a lot more.
Apache Qpid is highly optimized, and aims to be 100% AMQP Compliant.
The AMQP specifications are available for download on the AMQP website.
