60-day Public Review for Advanced Message Queueing Protocol (AMQP) v1.0 Candidate OASIS Standard (COS)
Members of the OASIS Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) TC  have recently approved a Special Majority Ballot  to advance OASIS Advanced Message Queueing Protocol (AMQP) Version 1.0 Committee Specification 01 as a Candidate OASIS Standard (COS). The COS now enters a 60-day public review period in preparation for a member ballot to consider its approval as an OASIS Standard.
OASIS Advanced Message Queueing Protocol (AMQP) Version 1.0
Candidate OASIS Standard 01
07 August 2012
AMQP (Advanced Message Queueing Protocol) is an efficient, reliable, wire level messaging protocol supporting common middleware messaging interaction patterns: messaging, request/response, publish/subscribe, transactions, and store and forward. It allows middleware applications to communicate with each other without having to have the same infrastructure on both ends (i.e. it provides vendor-neutral communications).
Like all communication protocols, AMQP describes the message syntax and sequence for performing their different assigned tasks. AMQP is capable of being used in both synchronous (point-to-point) and asynchronous (broker based) architectures and is independent of any particular broker architecture. AMQP is of special importance in providing enterprise and cloud messaging services.
Five statements of use for this COS were received from IIT Software GmbH., INETCO Systems Ltd., Microsoft, Red Hat and Storm MQ .
