The alternative to this would be to write a AMQP client in C :-) Once
you have understood the AMQP model, this is not a hard thing to do,
and we have a guide about how to develop AMQP clients for the language
of your choice. So if you're keen, you will learn a lot about the AMQP
in general, which will be very valueable for any message based
application development. Just a thought.

Have you looked at the AS3 client for AMQP as opposed to STOMP?


Here is one example usage:

If you look in the AS3 category on that blog, you will see more examples.

If you don't really need to use STOMP, you can use plain jane AMQP
with the AS3 library I mentioned above, so the semantics are identical
to those of the Java AMQP client.
