== 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.

AMQP is an open standard for messaging middleware.

Middleware is a software that connects other software together. Middleware connects islands of automation, both within an enterprise and out to external systems.

By complying to the AMQP standard, middleware products written for different platforms and in different languages can send messages to one another. AMQP addresses the problem of transporting value-bearing messages across and between organisations in a timely manner.

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.
