Invitation to comment on AMQP Addressing v1.0

First public review of this draft specification - ends May 21st

OASIS and the OASIS Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) TC are pleased to announce that AMQP Addressing Version 1.0 is now available for public review and comment.

The Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) is an open standard for passing business messages between applications or organizations. It connects systems, feeds business processes with the information they need and reliably transmits onward the instructions that achieve their goals.

AMQP Addressing v1.0 further defines the “AMQP network” concept introduced in the main AMQP specification as a federation of AMQP containers whose nodes communicate with each other either directly or via intermediaries. This specification also defines the semantics of the “address” archetype that was left undefined in the main AMQP specification, and the syntax for the AMQP URI scheme and a matching restriction of the AMQP “address-string” type.
