I have been studying openAMQ, implementation of AMQP from imatix, since a long. I am not able to figure out the difference between it and JMS. Both are messaging middlewares. The document for AMQP says: AMQP differs from JMS as it also defines wire level protocol.
AMQP is application level protocol similar to HTTP, FTP or SMTP. This makes the picture somewhat clear to me, however I need a clear understanding of the overall scenario.
Can anyone please let me know how AMQP and JMS differ?
