AMQP Infrastructure


AMQP Infrastructure (AMQPI) is a technology that makes it easy to build scalable, interoperable, high-performance enterprise applications.

AMQPI is based on version 0-10 of AMQP or Advanced Message Queuing Protocol.


Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 10
  • Last updated: September 11, 2008
  • Percentage of completion: 100%
  • There is a web-based console application for AMQPI that has not yet been packaged for Fedora. However, AMQPI is fully functional as it currently exists.

Detailed Description

This feature consists of an AMQP (protocol version 0-10) messaging broker/server, client bindings for C++, Python, and Ruby, and a set of cli configuration/management utilities.

Also included is a high-performance asynchronous message store for durable messages and messaging configuration.

Benefit to Fedora

AMQP Infrastructure provides an enterprise-class messaging infrastructure that supports multiple programming languages and provides interoperability among those languages.

AMQP Infrastructure is made up of the following packages, which may be installed using "yum install":

  • qpidc
  • amqp
  • rhm
  • python-qpid
  • ruby-qpid


AMQP Infrastructure is complete and has been uploaded to the Rawhide distribution as ".fc10" rpms.

Test Plan

Red Hat Messaging should be tested on i386 and x86_64 architectures.

There is an examples RPM (rhm-examples) that provides a comprehensive set of runnable examples (in all supported languages). The set of examples and scripts to run them in various combinations provides the basis for a good feature test.

User Experience

This is an infrastructure/middleware feature. It is not visible to users but provides powerful communication facilities to developers.



Contingency Plan

None necessary. This feature is not critical to other features in Fedora.
