Advanced Message Queue Protocol

My friend Erik pointed me at Advanced Message Queue Protocol a year ago, but I assumed it died.

Well, he pointed me at it again and it looks like it may go somewhere.

This would be fantastic. While I love messaging, bridging messaging systems really limits their reach.

I wonder how they are going to get everyone to play along (IBM, Tibco, Sonic, etc.). Hopefully, RedHat's effort will help: RedHat is currently working on an implementation that will be built into the operating system, making AMQ as free and available as SendMail, and accessible from any technology API such as JMS.

If this happens, it would be a major step forward in my opinion and a major enabler for large scale event driven architecture.
