OASIS members and other interested parties,
The OASIS Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) Bindings and Mappings (AMQP-BINDMAP) TC members  have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:
Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) WebSocket Binding (WSB) Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
19 April 2016
This specification describes how the WebSocket protocol can be used as a transport for AMQP 1.0 protocol traffic. It is applicable for two main scenarios:
- Firewall traversal. Since WebSocket connection establishment is implemented as standard HTTP traffic using the default ports (80 and 443), it is often able to pass through network security devices without requiring special configuration or opening of additional ports. When WebSocket is used as a transport for AMQP 1.0 protocol traffic, this enables communication between arbitrary AMQP peers such as an application using an AMQP client library and an AMQP message broker, separated by a firewall.
- Browser-based messaging. HTML5 compatible Web browsers have built-in support for the WebSocket protocol, thereby enabling a broad range of browser-based AMQP messaging scenarios.
About the TC:
The purpose of the AMQP Bindings and Mappings (AMQP-BINDMAP) TC is to define bindings of AMQP 1.0 core protocol to underlying transports other than TCP, to define mappings of the AMQP 1.0 core protocol to existing well-known programming APIs, and to define representations of the AMQP 1.0 message format in existing well-known languages.
Public Review Period:
The public review starts 23 May 2016 at 00:00 UTC and ends 06 June 2016 at 11:59 UTC. The specification was previously submitted for public review . This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Changes are highlighted in the included red-lined DIFF file .
