Proton is a high performance, lightweight messaging library. It can be used in the widest range of messaging applications including brokers, client libraries, routers, bridges, proxies, and more. Proton is based on the AMQP 1.0 messaging standard. Using Proton it is trivial to integrate with the AMQP 1.0 ecosystem from any platform, environment, or language.
- universal: Proton is designed to scale both up and down. Equally suitable for simple clients or high powered servers, it can be trivially deployed in simple peer to peer configurations or as part of a global federated messaging network.
- embeddable: Proton is carefully written to be portable and cross platform. It has minimal dependencies, and is architected to be usable with any threading model as well as with non threaded applications. These features make it uniquely suitable for embedding messaging capabilities into existing software codebases.
- standard: Built around the AMQP 1.0 messaging standard, proton is not only ideal for building out your own messaging applications, but also for connecting them to the broader ecosystem of AMQP 1.0 based messaging applications.
