WHINT AWS SQS Adapter (On-Premise)



This JCA Adapter for SAP Process Orchestration connects to Amazon Web Service´s (AWS) Simple Queue Service (SQS) as well as Simple Notification Service (SNS) in a reliable way. It enables businesses to establish a properly decoupled application integration using message queues and topics like known queue-based protocols as JMS or AMQP.

“Amazon SQS is a distributed queue system that enables web service applications to quickly and reliably queue messages that one component in the application generates to be consumed by another component. A queue is a temporary repository for messages that are awaiting processing.” (Source: Amazon)

Our AWS SQS Adapter enables SAP Process Orchestration to act as a publisher and/or consumer of SQS messages.

The current release uses the version 1.11.143 of the aws-java-sdk.
