             Summary: proton-c: Messenger uses hard-coded link names of 
sender-xxx & receiver-xxx
                 Key: PROTON-491
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-491
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: proton-c
    Affects Versions: 0.6
            Reporter: Dominic Evans


# Abstract

The qpid-proton 'messenger' implementation currently uses hard-coded 
receiver-xxx and sender-xxx link names for all attachments.

# Description

I believe the AMQP 1.0 spec says here that:- although client-ids do not need to 
be unique, the triplet of <client-id>, <link-name> and <server-id>  *is* 
guaranteed to be unique.

http://docs.oasis-open.org/amqp/core/v1.0/os/amqp-core-transport-v1.0-os.html#doc-idp298752

However, the qpid-proton Messenger code seems to have all link-name's 
hard-coded to sender-xxx and receiver-xxx

As an easyfix, I would suggest that by default the topicname part of the 
address should be appended to the link-name (instead of -xxx)

e.g., amqp://localhost/topicName --> sender-topicName / receiver-topicName

However, that would still cause a clash if the same messenger wanted to make 
two subscriptions to the same topic, so perhaps the Messenger implementation 
needs to track what link names it has allocated and ensure a unique name is 
assigned each time?
