How to process message queuing system by amazon SQS

MicroPyramid, a standard AWS consulting partner with astonishing AWS consultants, who can guide you to process message queuing system by Amazon SQS. Consult our technical experts to get best AWS consulting services with outstanding quality and productivity.

Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) is a distributed messaging queue oriented service.

messages are queued into SQS which are variable in size but can be no larger than 256KB. SQS doesn’t give the guarantee to the delivery order of messages. SQS messages will be delivered more than once with no guarantee to the order of message. Using Visibility Timeout we can ensure once a message has been retrieved it will not be resent for a given period of time.

In this tutorial, we'll see how to manage SQS queues and messages using boto3.

    import boto3

    # boto3 connect

    sqs = boto3.resource(

        'sqs',

        region_name=AWS_REGION_NAME,

        aws_access_key_id=AWS_ACESS_KEY_ID,

        aws_secret_access_key=AWS_SECRET_ACESS_KEY)

In the above code, we are connecting to a sqs resource in a given region, access key id, secret key using boto3.

Creating A Queue:

    queue = sqs.create_queue(QueueName='testqueue', Attributes={'DelaySeconds': '5'})

We should give queue name, can also give other attributes such as delay seconds(number of seconds to wait before an item may be processed), ApproximateNumberOfMessages, MaximumMessageSize.

It returns unique queue url though which we can access queue and its messages

Connecting to an existing Queue:

After connecting to a service, we are connecting a SQS Queue by giving queue name with get_queue_by_name method.

    queue = sqs.get_queue_by_name(QueueName=AWS_QUEUE_NAME)

Sending Messages

In SQS, we can create single, bulk messages in a queue using send_message and send_messages command.

Adding a single message:

            response = queue.send_message(

                QueueUrl=url,

                MessageBody='message1',

                MessageAttributes={

                'Type': {

                    'name': 'String'

                }

            )

            print response

It returns a message id, message body for generated message. We can alse user defined attrubutes to a individual message.

Adding a bulk messages:

            response = queue.send_messages(Entries=[{

                QueueUrl=url,

                MessageBody='message1',

                MessageAttributes={

                'Type': {

                    'length': '09'

                },

                {QueueUrl=url,

                MessageBody='message2',

                MessageAttributes={

                'Size': {

                    'size': '20'

                }]

            )

            print response

Response will contain all successful message and failed messages information in a queue.

Processing Messages

    message = queue.receive_messages()[0]

    message = queue.receive_messages(MessageAttributeNames=['Type'])[0]

    sqs message will be processed in batches, we can retrieve all messages or filter particular messages based on attribute types in a queue. We will get the message information in an xml format. We can convert it to json using xmltodict package. Here you can find relevant information to process information.

Deleting Messages

    response = client.delete_message(

        QueueUrl=url,

        ReceiptHandle=MESSAGE_ID

    )
    response = queue.delete_messages(

        Entries=[

            {

                'Id': MESSAGE_ID,

                'ReceiptHandle': MESSAGE_BODY

            },

        ]

    )

    Here we give the queue url, message id for the message to be deleted.

Delete Queue

    response = client.delete_queue(

        QueueUrl=url

    )

When you delete a queue, you must wait at least 60 seconds to delete the queue and creating a queue with the same name.
