stormmq joins the AMQP Working Group

stormmq is built around the AMQP protocol, a protocol that was designed when a group of vendors got together with a few users with a vision to build a reliable and open protocol for the MQ market.

stormmq is built around the AMQP protocol, a protocol that was designed when a group of vendors got together with a few users with a vision to build a reliable and open protocol for the MQ market.

The goal was to produce the next generation MQ protocol to replace the incumbent proprietary standards. Over the past few years this protocol has passed through a few iterations but the current agreed standard is AMQP 0‐9‐1.

For the last few months the AMQP Working Group have been working diligently on the AMQP 1‧0 specification. We decided at stormmq that we wanted to contribute to this in an active role in the Working Group and made an application last month. After several interviews and plenty of due diligence we were formally accepted into the Working Group today (5th January 2011).

We look forward to working closely with the other Working Group members to get AMQP 1‧0 agreed and released. Soon after this specification has been agreed we plan to release a new version of stormmq that supports this new specification. Other members of the Working Group are:‐

  • Bank of America
  • Barclays Bank
  • Cisco Systems
  • Credit Suisse
  • Deutsche Börse
  • Goldman Sachs
  • INETCO Systems
  • Informatica
  • JPMorgan Chase & Co.
  • Microsoft
  • Novell
  • Progress Software
  • VMware (RabbitMQ)
  • Red Hat
  • Software AG
  • Solace Systems
  • Tervela
  • TWIST Process Innovations
  • WSO2
