URL Format for connections and binding
There are currently two formats implemented in the Java code base. One is for connection and the other is an exchange binding URL. The URL formats have been designed around the Java URI format. This allows the parsing majority of the parsing work to be handled for us.
- Connection URL Format - The format used to describe a connection.
- BindingURLFormat - The format used for creating bindings within and to a broker.
The C++ broker uses a different connection URL format and has no binding URL format.
There is a new Url Format Proposal to define a single format for Qpid and also is being submitted to the AMQP working group for standardization.
