Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP)

AMQP is an open standard for enterprise messaging, designed to support messaging for almost any distributed or business application.

The AMQ protocol and its open-source implementations provide a solution for anyone requiring high-performance, versatile message communications. As I demonstrate here, using the Apache Qpid message broker is an easy way to achieve these goals. See my blog at for further discussion regarding this article.
