STOMP - Simple (or Streaming) Text Orientated Messaging Protocol



STOMP provides an interoperable wire format so that STOMP clients can communicate with any STOMP message broker to provide easy and widespread messaging interoperability among many languages, platforms and brokers.


STOMP is a very simple and easy to implement protocol, coming from the HTTP school of design; the server side may be hard to implement well, but it is very easy to write a client to get yourself connected. For example you can use Telnet to login to any STOMP broker and interact with it!


The protocol is broadly similar to HTTP, and works over TCP using the following commands:

  • CONNECT

  • SEND

  • SUBSCRIBE

  • UNSUBSCRIBE

  • BEGIN

  • COMMIT

  • ABORT

  • ACK

  • NACK

  • DISCONNECT

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.
