Working with Amazon SQS APIs

This section provides information about constructing Amazon SQS endpoints, making Query API requests using the GET and POST methods, and using batch API actions. For detailed information about Amazon SQS actions—including parameters, errors, examples, and data types—see the Amazon Simple Queue Service API Reference.

To access Amazon SQS using a variety of programming languages, you can also use Amazon SDKs which contain the following automatic functionality:

  • Cryptographically signing your service requests

  • Retrying requests

  • Handling error responses

For command-line tool information, see the Amazon SQS sections in the Amazon CLI Command Reference and the Amazon Tools for PowerShell Cmdlet Reference.
