Yes, indeed, that should not be a problem. There are two protocol 
versions over which that should be possible: AMQP 0-10 and AMQP 1.0.

In qpid::messaging, the encode() and decode() functions are tied to 0-10 
encoding. There, the content-type of the message is used to indicate how 
the bytes are to be interpreted. In the case of a map, it will be sent 
with content-type "amqp/map". This can be read from the AMQP 0-10 JMS 
client as a MapMessage.

A more future-proof approach is to instead use the 'content-object' 
attribute of a message in qpid::messaging. This can be set to be a 
Variant of any type, including a map, and when sent will be encoded 
appropriately. This approach should work for both AMQP 0-10 and AMQP 1.0.

(The broker will also convert map messages from 0-10 to 1.0 format if 
needed, i.e. if they are sent in one version, but consumed in another)
