With the completion of the AMQP 1.0 specification, the AMQP Working Group has submitted the business messaging protocol to the international open standards body, OASIS. What does this mean? OASIS AMQP will engage in further development of the protocol, seek ratification as an international open standard, and promote the mainstream adoption of AMQP 1.0 for everything from infrastructure services to cloud computing.
Companies such as JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America and the Deutsche Börse Group, who are looking for a more cost sensitive approach to middleware interoperability and also require reliable message queuing for their critical business applications, can now seriously consider the AMQP 1.0 protocol solution, and feel confident about drawing on the documentation and community needed for successful implementation and ongoing support. It will be interesting to watch the impact this open standards protocol will have on the proprietary middleware software market…
Current members of the OASIS AMQP Member Section include Bank of America, N.A. , Deutsche Börse Group, IIT Software GmbH, INETCO Systems Ltd, JPMorgan Chase Bank & Co., Kaazing Corporation, Microsoft Corporation, my-Channels, Progress Software, Red Hat Inc., Software AG, Solace Systems Inc., StormMQ, VMware Inc., and WSO2 Inc. The group is open to all, and new participants are welcome.

“As one of the original co-founders of the AMQP Working Group, Red Hat is gratified to see AMQP’s acceptance into OASIS. Red Hat’s vision of interoperable and open messaging has already found success with many deployments of its AMQP messaging offering, Red Hat Enterprise MRG, and the inclusion of native AMQP support directly in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Now with the support of OASIS, we expect AMQP to become one of the industry’s key computing standards for everything from infrastructure services to cloud computing.”
–Brian Stevens, CTO and Vice President, Worldwide Engineering, RedHat
“A platform independent and vendor neutral protocol like AMQP removes major hurdles in advancing interoperability of message oriented middleware technologies. As a long-standing member of the AMQP private Working Group that helped stabilize the specifications, Software AG is very pleased to see the work transition to an established standards body. We look forward to our continued involvement as a member of the OASIS AMQP Steering Committee.”
–Hans-Christoph Rohland, Senior Vice President-R&D, Software AG
“VMware welcomes the acceptance of AMQP into OASIS. This significant milestone promises to bring standardized and interoperable business messaging to a broad cross-section of industry. Through RabbitMQ, VMware has many years of experience working with AMQP, and we have demonstrated that AMQP-based integration between multiple languages and platforms can indeed be simple and open. With a wide range of proven use cases from cloud computing, sensor networks, and online gaming, all the way to financial transactions, AMQP should be your first choice for application integration.”
–Adrian Colyer, CTO vFabric, VMware
