Working with Amazon SQS

This section describes how to use Java or C# to perform Amazon SQS operations such as sending a message to an Amazon SQS queue, and retrieving and deleting messages from the queue. The following sections are intended to be followed sequentially, like a tutorial.


Code examples are provided in this guide only for Java and C#. However, you can write code in additional programming languages. For more information, see the documentation for the AWS SDKs for Go, JavaScript, PHP, Python, and Ruby.

In addition to the AWS Management Console, you can explore Amazon SQS without writing code by using tools such as the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) or Windows PowerShell. AWS CLI examples are provided in the Amazon SQS section of the AWS CLI Reference. Windows PowerShell examples are provided in the Amazon Simple Queue Service section of the AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell Cmdlet Reference.
