The OP is asking how to test a *client* for compliance.

There is no test suite available for AMQP clients. AMQP is a primarily 
client-driven protocol, i.e. stuff happens because the client did 
something. There is no portable way for a test suite to drive a client 
and make it do something since, by definition, clients are written in 
all kinds of different languages, make different choices as to what APIs 
to present to developers, etc
