4.2. Endpoints

In Qpid 0.6 the WCF Endpoints map to simple AMQP 0-10 exchanges (IOutputChannel) or AMQP 0-10 queues (IInputChannel). The format for an IOutputChannel is

  "amqp:amq.direct" or "amqp:my_exchange?routingkey=my_routing_key"

and for an IInputChannel is


The routing key is in fact a default value associated with the particular channel. Outgoing messages can always have their routing key uniquely set.

If the respective queue or exchange doesn't exist, an exception is thrown when opening the channel. Queues and exchanges can be created and configured using qpid-config.
