» AMQP stands for » Advanced Message Queue Protocol, which is an open standard middleware layer for message routing and queuing. This extension is compatible with any Version 0-9-1 compatible AMQP broker, such as » RabbitMQ and » OpenAMQ.
This extension relies on the » librabbitmq RPC library for communicating with the AMQP broker. Though named "rabbit", this library is compatible with all Version 0-9-1 compatible AMQP brokers.
We *HIGHLY* recommend you review the » AMQP specification reference, version 0-9-1. This document will help explain a lot of the calls made available by this extension.
