Subject Public Review for AMQP WebSocket Binding V1.0 - ends June 6th
Date Fri, 20 May 2016 20:26:54 GMT
OASIS members and other interested parties,

The OASIS Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) Bindings and Mappings
(AMQP-BINDMAP) TC members [1] have produced an updated Committee
Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day
public review:

Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) WebSocket Binding (WSB) Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
19 April 2016

Specification Overview:

This specification describes how the WebSocket protocol can be used as a
transport for AMQP 1.0 protocol traffic. It is applicable for two main

- Firewall traversal. Since WebSocket connection establishment is
implemented as standard HTTP traffic using the default ports (80 and 443),
it is often able to pass through network security devices without requiring
special configuration or opening of additional ports. When WebSocket is
used as a transport for AMQP 1.0 protocol traffic, this enables
communication between arbitrary AMQP peers such as an application using an
AMQP client library and an AMQP message broker, separated by a firewall.

- Browser-based messaging. HTML5 compatible Web browsers have built-in
support for the WebSocket protocol, thereby enabling a broad range of
browser-based AMQP messaging scenarios.

About the TC:

The purpose of the AMQP Bindings and Mappings (AMQP-BINDMAP) TC is to
define bindings of AMQP 1.0 core protocol to underlying transports other
than TCP, to define mappings of the AMQP 1.0 core protocol to existing
well-known programming APIs, and to define representations of the AMQP 1.0
message format in existing well-known languages.

Public Review Period:

The public review starts 23 May 2016 at 00:00 UTC and ends 06 June 2016 at
11:59 UTC. The specification was previously submitted for public review
[2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the
previous review. Changes are highlighted in the included red-lined DIFF
file [3].

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from
