AMQP 1.0 Prototype IM Client

I downloaded an AMQP 1.0 desktop IM client from AMQP 2010 F2F homepage. The broker was running on the cloud – on an EC2 instance in Virginia to be precise - in this case.


The coolest thing about this tool was its protocol trace that showed AMQP frames and message flow. I was fascinated to see real AMQP frames in a real world application.

It's a fairly basic IM client at the moment - I may work on making it a little more full-featured over time to demonstrate some more of the capabilities of AMQP.

The client is demonstrating interoperability between to different implementation - the Java client that I wrote, and the Python prototype broker contributed by Rafael Schloming.

We'll be taking the broker down shortly as it was only really up to demonstrate during the conference. You can download the broker code and the client... and run it yourself. I'll update the client to allow connections to other IP addresses and ports
