Getting Started

Once you have registered with Amazon SQS, you're ready to create your queue and store some messages on SQS. Each queue can contain unlimited amount of messages, identified by name.

The following example demonstrates creating a queue, storing and retrieving messages.

Example 776. Zend_Service_Amazon_Sqs Usage Example

= new Zend_Service_Amazon_Sqs($my_aws_key$my_aws_secret_key);

$queue_url $sqs->create('test');

$message 'this is a test';
$message_id $sqs->send($queue_url$message);

foreach (
$sqs->receive($queue_url) as $message) {

Since the Zend_Service_Amazon_Sqs service requires authentication, you should pass your credentials (AWS key and secret key) to the constructor. If you only use one account, you can set default credentials for the service:

$sqs = new Zend_Service_Amazon_Sqs();
