MQ Light and AMQP (Advanced Message Queuing Protocol)
The IBM MQ Light API is based on the OASIS Standard AMQP Version 1.0 wire protocol. AMQP is used to receive, queue, route and deliver messages.
Its main benefits are:
- Built on standardised open source
- Compatibility with other open source AMQP 1.0 clients
You can find more information on the AMQP website.
