Subject: (PR) 30-day Public Review for OASIS AMQP Version 1.0

The OASIS Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) TC [1] members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 30-day public review:

OASIS AMQP Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
21 February 2012

Specification Overview:

AMQP (Advanced Message Queuing Protocol) is an efficient, reliable, wire level messaging protocol supporting common middleware messaging interaction patterns: messaging, request/response, publish/subscribe, transactions, and store and forward. It allows middleware applications to communicate with each other without having to have the same infrastructure on both ends (i.e. it provides vendor neutral communications). 

Like all communication protocols, AMQP describes the message syntax and sequence for performing their different assigned tasks. AMQP is capable of being used in both synchronous (point-to-point) and asynchronous (broker based) architectures and is independent of any particular broker architecture. AMQP is of special importance in providing enterprise and cloud messaging services. 

TC Description: 

The OASIS AMQP TC advances a vendor-neutral and platform-agnostic protocol that offers organizations an easier, more secure approach to passing real-time data streams and business transactions. The goal of AMQP is to ensure information is safely and efficiently transported between applications, among organizations, across distributed cloud computing environments, and within mobile infrastructures. AMQP avoids proprietary technologies, offering the potential to lower the cost of enterprise middleware software integrations through open interoperability. By enabling a commoditized, multi-vendor ecosystem, AMQP seeks to create opportunities for transforming the way business is done in the Cloud and over the Internet. 

For more information, see the TC Charter (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/amqp/charter.php) and AMQP Member Section  (http://www.amqp.org/) web site. 

Public Review Period:

The public review starts today, 9 March 2012 and ends 8 April 2012.
