Advanced Message Queueing Protocol (AMQP)
Overview of AMQP
AMQP is a new open standard for messaging middleware. It solves the problem of how to connect applications, across LANs and WANs. Before AMQP, there was no standard for interconnecting applications, and this was one of the more expensive parts of a largescale software architecture. AMQP is a wire-level protocol plus a model for routing and queueing messages. It covers both very high performance pub-sub (with speeds of up to 150k messages/second through a single broker) and high-reliability messaging (with guaranteed delivery no matter what). There are several open source AMQP implementations including iMatix's OpenAMQ. The original AMQP design was made by iMatix Corporation for JPMorganChase Bank, and is now in the hands of an industry workgroup.
The AMQP dissector was written by iMatix Corporation, lead developer is Martin Sustrik (sustrik.at.imatix.com). The AMQP dissector is in pre-alpha phase. Your comments and requests are welcome.
Protocol is currently defined to use TCP as its transport protocol.
In the future SCTP is going to be supported as transport protocol as well.
There are no preference settings so far.
