The article is a bit misguided as it presents OpenMAMA and AMQP as 
alternatives. Technically, they are not: Each is living at different 
layer of the stack, moreover, one is an API and implementation, other 
one is a wire protocol. They can well be used together.

It may be right though, in that OpenMAMA may be used to endow 
proprietary messaging solutions (see the grey boxes here: 
http://www.openmama.org/developers/architecture) with the gleam of openness.
