Apache Qpid Developer to Help You Succeed

Apache Qpid is an implementation of the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) that is quickly growing into a pervasive message-oriented middleware solution. Why am I enthusiastic about Apache Qpid?

  • AMQP was born to solve particular, specific problems that industry needed solved
  • Project run under auspices of the Apache Software Foundation so it is very well organized and run and very fairly licensed for all uses
  • Big-name contributors such as Red Hat, JP Morgan Chase, and Microsoft put a lot of real-world engineering talent into the project

Real-world impetus. Solid management. World-class engineering. Yeah, I'm in. After "earning my stripes" on the project, I'm a committer and a member of the Project Management Committee.

I've worked more and more with Qpid lately. I ported the C++ broker and client to Windows, authored the 0.5 Windows installer, and led the effort to convert the build system to CMake. Thanks to forward-thinking customers, I continue to add new features and enhancements. I've also built a customer system using Qpid.

Do you need Qpid ported to a new system? Thinking about using Qpid for an upcoming project? I'd love to talk with you more about it and see if it's a good fit for you and if there's a way I can help. Please call Steve Huston at 508-541-9180 or email [email protected].

Review of AMQP Face-to-Face Public Meeting, April 1, 2009

Holding a public review for a new middleware specification somewhere as gorgeous as the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego takes guts. I mean, really, with views like this, the material being presented has to be really good to keep the audience's attention.

AMQP, and its energetic originator and chief evangelist, John O'Hara from JP Morgan, did not disappoint, referring to AMQP as "Internet Protocol for Business Messaging" with a vision to have an AMQP endpoint with every TCP endpoint, much as is the case with HTTP today. more...
