Proton is a library for speaking AMQP, including:

  • The AMQP Messenger API, a simple but powerful interface to send and receive messages over AMQP.
  • The AMQP Protocol Engine, a succinct encapsulation of the full AMQP protocol machinery.

Proton is designed for maximum embeddability:

  • minimal dependencies
  • minimal assumptions about application threading model

Proton is designed to scale up and down:

  • transparently supports both simple peer to peer messaging and complex globally federated topologies

Proton is multi-lingual:

  • Proton-C - a C implementation with lanuage bindings in Python, Php, Perl, Ruby, and Java (via JNI).
  • Proton-J - a pure Java implementation
