1.10.  AMQP compatibility

Qpid provides the most complete and compatible implementation of AMQP. And is the most aggressive in implementing the latest version of the specification.

There are two brokers:

There are client libraries for C++, Java (JMS), .Net (written in C#), python and ruby.

QMF Management is supported in Ruby, Python, C++, and via QMan for Java JMX & WS-DM.

1.10.1.  AMQP Compatibility of Qpid releases:

Qpid implements the AMQP Specification, and as the specification has progressed Qpid is keeping up with the updates. This means that different Qpid versions support different versions of AMQP. Here is a simple guide on what use.

Here is a matrix that describes the different versions supported by each release. The status symbols are interpreted as follows:

Y

supported

N

unsupported

IP

in progress

P

planned
