Advanced Message Queuing Protocol 1.0 now OASIS standard

Dec. 3, 2012

Members of the OASIS international open standards consortium have approved version 1.0 of the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol as an Oasis standard. AMQP is a wire-level messaging protocol that offers organizations an efficient, reliable approach to passing real-time data and business transactions. AMQP provides a platform-agnostic method for ensuring information is safely transported between applications, among organizations, within mobile infrastructures and across the cloud.

AMQP supports common interaction patterns: one-way, request/response, publish/subscribe, transactions, and store-and-forward. It does this with flow-control, multiplexing, security, recovery and a portable data representation that enables message filtering. AMQP is capable of being used in both point-to-point and hub-and-spoke (broker-based) topologies.

Many operating systems include AMQP implementations, and many application frameworks are AMQP-aware. There are cloud-hosted offerings of AMQP, and it is embedded in virtualization infrastructure.

"AMQP 1.0's support of the different fundamental message patterns makes it the ideal choice as a transport protocol between multi-vendor applications both within the Cloud and over the Internet," said Angus Telfer of INETCO, co-chair of the OASIS AMQP Technical Committee. "By avoiding proprietary technologies, AMQP can lower the cost of enterprise application integration by encouraging a full ecosystem of compatible message-oriented products, including both those delivering application value and those used to ensure higher performance, more reliable systems — i.e., application performance monitoring, network monitoring tools, etc."
