In summary, JMS is just a messaging API.
AMQP is a messaging protocol that defines a wire format and semantic
model on how to interpret it.
Qpid implements various versions of the AMQP protocol (namely 0-8,0-9
and 0-10 and obviously 1.0 in the future).

However a general users is only interested in messaging features and
not necessarily the nitty gritty details of the underlying protocol.
For this reason all Qpid clients use a high level API which maps to
the AMQP protocol underneath.

For c++, Python and the .NET client there is a Qpid specific API.
See http://qpid.apache.org/books/0.7/Programming-In-Apache-Qpid/html/ch02.html

For Java we use the established JMS API.

Using configuration and address strings, the end user gets to
manipulate certain features of the protocol.
Please read the following doc to get a complete understanding of how
it all fits together.

If you have any further questions please feel free to ask.
