This guide includes a listing of all AMPS commands as well as the required and optional parameters. AMPS supports a consistent set of commands and options regardless of the protocol used to communicate with AMPS. This guide covers the semantics of the commands and options, but does not cover how those commands and options are represented in any particular protocol. Each protocol uses a different concrete format for messages, and that format is specific to the protocol.

To use a command from your application, set the properties of the Command object as shown in this guide, the use the execute function to send the command. The AMPS client is responsible for interpreting the command and formatting the message to AMPS in the proper format for the specific protocol the client is using.
