AMQP is a new wire-level protocol for messaging. It makes it easy to get applications or pieces of applications to talk together across a LAN. Applications send messages to exchanges, which route them into queues, which deliver them to other applications. It sounds complex but it's simple and it makes life easy. AMQP uses a message broker to do the hard work. This is a server app that usually runs on its own box.
OpenAMQ is a message broker plus client libraries for C/C++ and JMS. OpenAMQ gives you a simple and powerful C API called WireAPI as well as tools like PAL for easy scripting. Other great AMQP products like RabbitMQ can talk to OpenAMQ from other programming languages. Implements AMQP/0.9.
Cost: OpenAMQ is open source and free to use at no charge. To install OpenAMQ takes only a few minutes. It comes pre-tuned and runs almost perfectly out of the box. To learn to use OpenAMQ will take you a day or so. To use WireAPI in your applications will take you a day or two. A real OpenAMQ development will take you some weeks.
