NAME

Amazon::SQS::Simple::Queue - OO API for representing queues from the Amazon Simple Queue Service.

SYNOPSIS

    use Amazon::SQS::Simple;
    my $access_key = 'foo'; # Your AWS Access Key ID
    my $secret_key = 'bar'; # Your AWS Secret Key
    my $sqs = new Amazon::SQS::Simple($access_key, $secret_key);
    my $q = $sqs->CreateQueue('queue_name');
    # Single messages
    
    my $response = $q->SendMessage('Hello world!');
    my $msg = $q->ReceiveMessage;
    print $msg->MessageBody; # Hello world!    
    $q->DeleteMessage($msg);
    # or, for backward compatibility
    $q->DeleteMessage($msg->ReceiptHandle);
    
    # Batch messaging of up to 10 messages per operation
    
    my @responses = $q->SendMessageBatch( [ 'Hello world!', 'Hello again!' ] );    
    # or with defined message IDs
    $q->SendMessageBatch( { msg1 => 'Hello world!', msg2 => 'Hello again!' } );
    my @messages = $q->ReceiveMessageBatch; 
    $q->DeleteMessageBatch( \@messages );

INTRODUCTION

Don't instantiate this class directly. Objects of this class are returned by various methods in "Amazon::SQS::Simple". See Amazon::SQS::Simple for more details.

METHODS

Endpoint()
Get the endpoint for the queue.
Delete([%opts])
Deletes the queue. Any messages contained in the queue will be lost.
SendMessage($message, [%opts])
Sends the message. The message can be up to 8KB in size and should be plain text.
SendMessageBatch($messages, [%opts])
Sends a batch of up to 10 messages, passed as an array-ref. Message IDs (of the style 'msg_1', 'msg_2', etc) are auto-generated for each message. Alternatively, if you need to specify the format of the message ID then you can pass a hash-ref {$id1 => $message1, etc}
ReceiveMessage([%opts])
Get the next message from the queue.
 
Returns one or more "Amazon::SQS::Simple::Message" objects (depending on whether called in list or scalar context), or undef if no messages are retrieved.
 
NOTE: This behaviour has changed slightly since v1.06. It now always returns the first message in scalar context, irrespective of how many there are.
 
See Amazon::SQS::Simple::Message for more details.
 
Options for ReceiveMessage:
MaxNumberOfMessages => INTEGER
 
Maximum number of messages to return (integer from 1 to 20). SQS never returns more messages than this value but might return fewer. Not necessarily all the messages in the queue are returned. Defaults to 1.
WaitTimeSeconds => INTEGER
 
Long poll support (integer from 0 to 20). The duration (in seconds) that the ReceiveMessage action call will wait until a message is in the queue to include in the response, as opposed to returning an empty response if a message is not yet available.
 
If you do not specify WaitTimeSeconds in the request, the queue attribute ReceiveMessageWaitTimeSeconds is used to determine how long to wait.
VisibilityTimeout => INTEGER
 
The duration in seconds (integer from 0 to 43200) that the received messages are hidden from subsequent retrieve requests after being retrieved by a ReceiveMessage request.
 
If you do not specify VisibilityTimeout in the request, the queue attribute VisibilityTimeout is used to determine how long to wait.
ReceiveMessageBatch([%opts])
As ReceiveMessage(MaxNumberOfMessages => 10)
DeleteMessage($message, [%opts])
Pass this method either a message object or receipt handle to delete that message from the queue. For backward compatibility, can pass the message ReceiptHandle rather than the message.
DeleteMessageBatch($messages, [%opts])
Pass this method an array-ref containing up to 10 message objects to delete all of those messages from the queue
ChangeMessageVisibility($receipt_handle, $timeout , [%opts])
NOT SUPPORTED IN APIs EARLIER THAN 2009-01-01
 
Changes the visibility of the message with the specified receipt handle to $timeout seconds. $timeout must be in the range 0..43200.
AddPermission($label, $account_actions, [%opts])
NOT SUPPORTED IN APIs EARLIER THAN 2009-01-01
 
Sets a permissions policy with the specified label. $account_actions is a reference to a hash mapping 12-digit AWS account numbers to the action(s) you want to permit for those account IDs. The hash value for each key can be a string (e.g. "ReceiveMessage") or a reference to an array of strings (e.g. ["ReceiveMessage", "DeleteMessage"])
RemovePermission($label, [%opts])
NOT SUPPORTED IN APIs EARLIER THAN 2009-01-01
 
Removes the permissions policy with the specified label.
GetAttributes([%opts])
Get the attributes for the queue. Returns a reference to a hash mapping attribute names to their values. Currently the following attribute names are returned:
VisibilityTimeout
ApproximateNumberOfMessages
SetAttribute($attribute_name, $attribute_value , [%opts])
Sets the value for a queue attribute. Currently the only valid attribute name is "VisibilityTimeout".
