The Advanced Message Queueing Protocol is at the heart of everything we do at Qpid. It is an open standard designed to support reliable, high-performance messaging over the internet. AMQP can be used for any distributed application and supports common messaging patterns such as point-to-point, fan-out, publish-subscribe, and request-response.
The AMQP working group released the 1.0 specification in the final quarter of 2011. Future evolution of the protocol is now driven by the member section and technical committees at OASIS.
AMQP 1.0 is fully symmetric (peer-to-peer) as opposed to its asymmetric (client-server) predecessors. This means it can be used with or without intermediaries such as brokers and offers new possibilities for messaging applications.
Qpid offers AMQP 1.0 support in the following components:
We offer a library, Qpid Proton, whose aim is to help you make your application speak AMQP.
