Today, OASIS, ISO, and IEC announced that AMQP 1.0 has been approved for release as an ISO and IEC International Standard. Simply put, this reinforces the message that AMQP 1.0 is a mature technology that offers reliable, secure communications that is suitable for deployment now for a range of scenarios from traditional enterprise messaging to modern mobile-cloud applications and emerging areas like Internet of Things.
AMQP 1.0 is supported by the Apache ActiveMQ broker and client libraries for a range of languages are being developed in the Apache Qpid Proton community. Last month at the Red Hat Summit, Red Hat announced general availability of Red Hat’s integration and messaging technologies, Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6.1 and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ 6.1, which now include full support for AMQP 1.0.

I've been working on AMQP since 2008 and it's really great to see this milestone reached today. Feel free to contact me if you'd like more information about AMQP or about Red Hat's messaging offerings in general.
