Streaming Text Oriented Messaging Protocol
This article needs additional citations for verification. (January 2017)
Simple (or Streaming) Text Oriented Message Protocol (STOMP), formerly known as TTMP, is a simple text-based protocol, designed for working with message-oriented middleware (MOM). It provides an interoperable wire format that allows STOMP clients to talk with any message broker supporting the protocol.
Communication between client and server is through a "frame" consisting of a number of lines. The first line contains the command, followed by headers in the form <key>: <value> (one per line), followed by a blank line and then the body content, ending in a null character. Communication between server and client is through a MESSAGE, RECEIPT or ERROR frame with a similar format of headers and body content.
SEND destination:/queue/a content-type:text/plain hello queue a ^@
These are some MOM products that support STOMP:
- Apache ActiveMQ, also known as Fuse Message Broker
- Open Message Queue (OpenMQ)
- RabbitMQ (message broker, has support for STOMP)
- syslog-ng through its STOMP destination plugin
A list of implementations is also maintained on the STOMP web site.
