Subject [jira] [Created] (QPID-5115) Windows client AMQP 1.0 support should be built in and not a loadable module
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 22:02:51 GMT
Chuck Rolke created QPID-5115:

             Summary: Windows client AMQP 1.0 support should be built in and not a loadable
                 Key: QPID-5115
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-5115
             Project: Qpid
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: C++ Client
    Affects Versions: 0.24
            Reporter: Chuck Rolke
            Assignee: Chuck Rolke

In order to get a Windows Qpid Messaging client support for AMQP 1.0 the user must define
an environment variable before executing the client program. In practice this is inconvenient
and it may well baffle new users simply trying to execute HelloWorld.

For example, assume a native windows installation has proton.dll in P:\bin and the Qpid messaging
libraries in Q:\bin.

If the user puts P:\bin and Q:\bin into his path and runs:


then no AMQP 1.0 support is available. Simply having qpidc.dll in the user path is not enough.
To get AMQP 1.0 the user must point to the amqpc.dll library:

set QPID_LOAD_MODULE=Q:\bin\qpidc.dll

This problem is just as bad for .NET managed code where every application that wants to inherit
use of the client libraries must have this environment variable set.

The solution proposed here is to simply build amqpc.dll into qpidmessaging.dll and have support
for AMQP 1.0 enabled automatically. AMPQ 1.0 support is enabled by loading the libraries that
are in the user's path.

In order to use AMQP 1.0 users still must specify "{protocol:amqp1.0}" in the connection options
so 1.0 support is not enabled without them knowing about it.
