David Ingham

Audience level:

Tuesday 4:15 p.m.–5 p.m. in Level 2 Right


This session will present an overview of the AMQP 1.0 and Apache Qpid including the latest status of the OASIS standards process, vendor support for AMQP, and a demonstration of enterprise messaging interoperability.


AMQP is the first open standard for enterprise messaging, and is currently going through the OASIS standardization process. Apache Qpid is a cross-platform implementation of AMQP for enterprise messaging systems, featuring message brokers written in C++ and Java as well as clients for the C++, Java JMS, .NET, Python, and Ruby programming languages. This session will cover the goals and architecture of AMQP 1.0 and Qpid, as well as the status of the OASIS standardization process and AMQP adoption. You will hear the latest news about major implementations and vendor support at the time of the conference. The bulk of the session will focus on an interoperability demonstration that will show how AMQP 1.0 provides robust enterprise-ready messaging capabilities to create diverse systems running in heterogeneous environments.

This session will be co-presented by David Ingham, Rob Godfrey, William Henry and Andreas Mueller.
