AMQP. Advanced Message Queuing Protocol. Protocol Specification. Version -1, the Advanced Messaging Queue Protocol Specification. The Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) is an open standard application layer The AMQP specification is defined in several layers: (i) a type system, (ii) a symmetric, asynchronous protocol for the , published in December , published in February and , published in November Protocol (“AMQP”) Specification and (ii) the Licensed Claims that are held by the Authors, all for. the purpose of implementing the Advanced Messaging Queue.

What is more likely is an slow implosion of the Working Group as it finds itself about to break one more promised deadline, spwcification unable to agree on how to move: When redelivering a message that was not successfully acknowledged, the server SHOULD deliver it to the original client if possible.

In AMQP, there is a primary elegant, powerful natural semantic: In the next section I’m going to point at an even larger assumption, one that underlies the whole AMQP vision, and one that I’ve always felt uncomfortable with. Too bad for the competition, but this is business, not charity. The way to solve complex problems is to make it easy for others to solve them.

This hidden queue is invisible to the protocol but it is necessary because AMQP delivers messages to recipients asynchronously. The incumbents charge more or less what they like, particularly on the after market for expert services, which is orders of magnitude larger than the upfront software license costs.

As a form of subtle comedy “we’re not ready yet, so here is some light farce to entertain you”it would have a certain style. Both customers and suppliers prefer the luxury route: As serious work and part of the historical record, it is a failure. The rules for joining and for voting are being relaxed somewhat but it’s still a tortuous process. The server SHOULD support a minimum of 16 exchanges per virtual host and ideally, impose no limit except as defined by available resources.


HTTP stopped at 1. The defining features of AMQP are message orientation, queuing, routing including point-to-point and publish-and-subscribereliability and security. So conventional AMQP wisdom is that the costs of binary encoding are a necessary price to pay if one wants a fast, reliable protocol.

Clients may declare queues starting with “amq. It also allows typed data to be annotated with additional meaning, [17] for example a particular string value might be annotated so that it could be understood as a URL.

The cardinal sin of specfication expert is to believe in their expertise. When getting the Connection. AMQP products don’t interoperate except in some limited cases. Originally the AMQP version header had one byte for the major version and one for the minor version. The peer MUST respond to an invalid class-id by raising a connection exception with reply code frame error. The fact that anyone can edit a Wikipedia page and thus make a mess of someone’s neat work is not a problem.

I will repeat an old joke – if you know what any part of the latest AMQP specification means, you were probably the author. If the mechanism field does not contain one of the security mechanisms proposed by the server in the Start method, the server MUST close the connection without sending any further data.

Or, you can visit amqp. After one of the first big flamewars in the Working Group, and after what seemed like specificcation thousand emails between two sides, the version number was changed to encode the minor version as a cardinal number 1 specifiaction In the point-to-point and data distribution scenarios, which are the heavy lifters in messaging, the server-side private queue, and the hidden client-side private queue do exactly the same work.

It took us many attempts to build all the good, simple things in AMQP. Annotations may be added before or after the bare message. This balancing can be done on a per-frame basis, or on the basis of amount of traffic per channel. In fact, standards are more about stopping speclfication than opening the door to it.


We start to get a glimpse of what AMQP’s architecture could become. The economic basis for making standards is the concept we call a natural monopoly. Connections are initiated with an open frame in which the sending peer’s capabilities are expressed, and terminated with a close frame.

The AMQP specification is open and free to all users and implementers. We explained it in early when we started our work on peer-to-peer messaging. If the server does not recognise the first 5 octets specjfication data on the socket, or does not support the specific protocol version that the client requests, it MUST write a valid protocol header to the socket, then flush the socket to ensure the client application will receive the data and then close the socket a,qp.

Yes, but it is absolutely irrelevant – and I can guarantee this – in the overall performance question. A neat one-liner that annoyed many people but inspired many others to take a closer look at this conflict of interests.

Or rather, the lack of it. I have to admit that my views on this particular topic pit me directly against others in the AMQP Working Group, who must think I am either naive, trollish, or just wrong-headed. AMQP’s main assumption that binary encoding a,qp needed can be broken into more detailed assumptions, each wrong:.

There is lots of deep technical competence around: Faster and simpler are desirable features. The server MAY implement other exchange types as wanted.
