Creating an example messaging application

You can create an AWS application that sends and retrieves messages by using the AWS SDK for JavaScript and Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS). Messages are stored in a first in, first out (FIFO) queue that ensures that the order of the messages is consistent. For example, the first message that’s stored in the queue is the first message read from the queue.

Note
