Subject Regarding Qpid Proton
Date Sun, 10 Feb 2013 19:37:58 GMT

I am a team member working on a project that involves the use of AMQP. We began our project
using 0.10, and after speaking with an industry employee who has much more familiarity with
AMQP than our team members, it was suggested that we merge to 1.0. 

We are currently running Apache Qpid 0.10, and are considering changing to Qpid Proton 1.0.
In performing initial research, it appears that our two options for harnessing the power of
Qpid Proton are the Messenger API, and the AMQP protocol engine. We feel the Messaging API
is a bit too simplistic for our needs, as the company we are working for has asked us to develop
a prototype, which requires us to be able to peer deeply into the underlying AMQP structure.
We feel AMQP protocol engine has potential, but have thus far been unable to find documentation
regarding its use and features. 

Our primary concern is the lack of flexibility and the unavailability of documentation. A
PowerPoint presentation found by our team, title "An Introduction to the AMQP 1-0 Draft",
contained a figure on slide 10. We have been unable to find any information on how the team
would configure this setup, especially in the event that there is more than one broker between
the producer and consumer. The youtube video titled "Introduction to Apache Qpid Proton" also
provided us with a cursory program outline to send and receive messages, but more thorough
documentation will be necessary to drive this product forward.

If there is additional documentation for using the more advanced features of Qpid Proton,
we would appreciate direction to said documentation. We are still relatively new to AMQP,
and any advice you are willing to provide is much appreciated. 

Thank you,
