On his blog today Kevin Schroeder has a quick post about an issue with the queue name when working with the Amazon SQS service.

I'm doing some work for a webinar and I figured out that if you want use AWS SQS in your app you need to specify not just the queue name, but the full URL. What is the full URL? It is what createQueue() returns.

His code example shows a "before" and "after" of using the createQueue method to make the correct queue name. You can find out more about the Amazon Simple Queue Service on the Amazon website. Additionally there's a PHP library to interface with it posted on the Amazon Web Services site.
