Amazon Web Services Short Tips: Get SQS Queue URL with Java


I will post some Developer content from now on, with a focus to some easy but helpful tasks when working with various Cloud Platforms. These tips will be named after the service (e.g. Amazon Web Services for AWS, …)

The first tip I want to show is how to retrieve the full queue URL when you already have the queue name:

sqs.getQueueUrl(new GetQueueUrlRequest().withQueueName("myqueue")).getQueueUrl();

The function “getQueueUrl()” already returns a String-representation and not a URI itself (this is what I would rather expect in that case)

I lead a team of Senior Experts in Data & Data Science as Head of Data & Analytics and AI at A1 Telekom Austria Group. I also teach this topic at various universities and frequently speak at various Conferences. In 2010 I wrote a book about Cloud Computing, which is often used at German & Austrian Universities. In my home country (Austria) I am part of several organisations on Big Data & Data Science.
