We’ve just finished and released our .NET/C# client library for AMQP. We developed it on Mono, and made sure it ran on the Microsoft .NET stacks as well – versions 1.1 and 2.0. There’s also a WCF binding, for exposing WCF-based services over AMQP. (The WCF binding only compiles and runs on the Microsoft CLR implementations, until Mono’s Olive WCF implementation matures a little, anyway.)
One interesting thing about the library is its support for more than just one protocol variant: it speaks AMQP 0-8 as standardised, AMQP 0-8 as extended by QPid, and AMQP 0-9 as standardised (sans the bits of the spec marked “work in progress”, ie. the Message class). You can switch protocol variants at runtime, and there’s a common interface that abstracts away from the incompatibilities in the protocol variants. We’ve run the library against RabbitMQ (of course), as well as QPid-java and OpenAMQ 1.2c4.
The library is documented in a PDF user guide, which actually contains quite a bit of useful general AMQP information and guidelines, and could form the core of a language-neutral RabbitMQ manual. The detailed API guide is also available – you can download the code, the binaries, and all the different reformattings of the documentation on the interim page for the .NET/C# client library.
Our RabbitMQ website is starting to look a bit messy, so we’re working on a revised layout that should be a bit tidier; then, the .NET stuff will be presented alongside all the other client libraries and bindings we have available, rather than being presented as a separate-looking piece.
