[Apologies for the much delayed response].

You first need to create a 'domain' on the broker that will initiate the 
connection to the other. This essentially defines how to connect. This 
is done through the 'create' QMF 'method' on the broker, using 'domain' 
as the type. The valid properties are 'url, 'username', 'password', 
'sasl_mechanisms (and less frequently needed min_ssf. max_ssf, 

At present you can do this either via qpid-tool or using the qpid-ctrl 
test utility[1]. E.g.

   qpid-ctrl create type=domain name=my-domain 

Next, you can statically set up incoming or outgoing links from the 
first broker to this 'domain'. You do that by again using the QMF 
'create' method, but this type using a type of either 'incoming' or 
'outgoing', depending on the desired direction of message flow. The 
valid properties for both types are 'domain', 'source' and 'target'

E.g. qpid-ctrl create type=outgoing name=my-outgoing-link 

There will be better tooling available for this eventually.

Alternatively, you can also simply relay through the broker to a defined 
domain without any statically setup links. To do this you simply append 
the domain name to the node you wish to send to. E.g. creating a sender 
on a session with the first broker to e.g. my-queue@my-domain, will 
result in the messages being relayed to my-queue on the second broker.

I.e. you can access nodes actually implemented in some other AMQP 1.0 
container (whether another qpidd, a different 1.0 capable broker or even 
a proton messenger service) to be accessed as if they were in the one 
broker the client is connected to.
