AMQP 1.0 becomes an International Standard
May 1, 2014
By David Ingham, senior manager, Middleware Engineering, Red Hat
Today, OASIS, ISO, and IEC announced that AMQP 1.0 has been approved for release as an ISO and IEC International Standard. AMQP is an open, interoperable protocol for business messaging. AMQP 1.0 was balloted through the Joint Technical Committee on Information Technology (JTC1) of the International Standards Organization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
Achieving international standardization is a significant step for any technology specification. It can only be attained by obtaining consensus on the importance of the work by representatives from the various national standards bodies that participate in the process. This status facilitates adoption across national borders and often becomes a strong factor for consideration into procurement preferences.
This milestone is the culmination of many years of effort by representatives from a collection of software vendors and user firms including Axway, Bank of America, Cisco, Credit Suisse, Cryptsoft, Deutsche Börse, JPMorgan Chase, Kaazing, Microsoft, Red Hat, Software AG, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and VMware.
As long-term contributors to the effort, we are delighted to see AMQP 1.0 become an international standard. We support AMQP 1.0 in our products and encourage its support in upstream communities. Last month at the Red Hat Summit, we announced general availability of Red Hat’s integration and messaging technologies, Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6.1 and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ 6.1, which now include full support for AMQP 1.0. The upstream Apache Qpid project plans to develop a set of AMQP 1.0 clients for a range of languages including Java JMS, C, Python, PHP, Ruby and others. Collectively, this ecosystem of components provides customers with a flexible, standards-based, open-source messaging platform. We continue to see AMQP used in a broad range of scenarios, from traditional enterprise messaging to cloud-based applications and Internet-of-Things, and the momentum is growing.
We look forward to continuing our work with the community to promote AMQP-based interoperability and innovation. To learn more about AMQP, visit http://amqp.org.
