The development of the AMQP specification is being driven by real-world, end-user demand for messaging infrastructure that is capable of integrating across various platforms, languages and protocols. AMQP is designed to be an effective means to create interoperability and unification of the messaging function because it is not reliant on specific implementations geared to individual platforms. The AMQP specification is also designed to interoperate with many of the current messaging and Web services specifications, including JMS, SOAP, WS-Security, WS-Transactions and many others, making AMQP an ideal messaging layer for use in service-oriented architecture (SOA). Further, AMQP is unique in that it provides an interoperable wire-level protocol, making it complementary to messaging application programming interfaces (APIs) such as JMS and useful in next-generation network infrastructure.
The AMQP is a binary level protocol that is divided into two layers and designed with a flexible, plug-in architecture. Both the functional layer and the transport layer can be easily evolved to enable AMQP to respond to changing technology requirements. The current AMQP specification is at version 0.8 in anticipation that input from others will drive the protocol to its full potential; the working group welcomes contributions from interested parties. The AMQP specification is expected to reach version 1.0 within 18 months, at which time the working group will submit it to a standards body. There are currently multiple implementations of AMQP version 0.8 in production that are fully interoperable. To view the AMQP Specification materials, visit one of the following member pages:
