Re: Basic question on AMQP 1.0 protocol support


I think most of your questions were already answered on your other email
which was very similar to this one, but I'll here as well for clarity's
sake...

complies with the standard spec?

In general, yes.

AMQP" the same way at the protocol level.

That's correct.  AMQP 1.0 is a standard that exists independent of any
implementation.

> ...brokers and clients have to support the standard (whereas the specific
version of any given client library is not as important as supporting the
standard).

In general, yes.

> I should be fine using another version of the client library although I
accept risks if I pick one that doesn't properly implement the standard
spec for AMQP 1.0.

You should be fine.


I understand that you're interested specifically in AMQP 1.0 here, but that
detail could be removed and this discussion could easily just be about
standards in general.  You could just as easily be talking about TCP, HTTP,
SMTP, FTP, etc.  These are all standard protocols for networked devices
(i.e. like AMQP).  The reason standards exist is so that lots of different
implementations can work together.
