Subject RE: Help on how to use JCloud API with SQS
Date Tue, 10 Nov 2015 12:05:26 GMT
Hi Ignasi,

Thank you this is helpful and I am able to send a simple message but something is still not
clicking even after reading the API docs.

For example in AWS I can include message attributes when I send a message like this

   AWSCredentials credentials = Aws.getAwsCredentials(accessKey, secretKey);
        AmazonSQSClient sqs = new AmazonSQSClient(credentials);                          
        SendMessageRequest smr = new SendMessageRequest();
        for (Map.Entry<String, String> entry : map.entrySet()) {
            System.out.println(entry.getKey() + " :: " + entry.getValue());
            MessageAttributeValue mav = new MessageAttributeValue();
            smr.addMessageAttributesEntry(entry.getKey(), mav);
        SendMessageResult x =  sqs.sendMessage(smr);
        System.out.println("SQS message published..." + x.getMessageId());

I cannot understand which API or object  I would use in Jcloud to do the same I thought using
the SendMessageOptions would work but it's not

Thanks again

Hi Max,

I haven't used that API, but in jclouds all APIs and providers are instantiated the same way.
You need to use the ContextBuilder [1] to configure the provider, the credentials, and configuration
properties that may be required for some particular providers. In general, it looks like:

TheApi api = ContextBuilder.newBuilder("api or provider id")
   .credentials("identity", "credential")
   .overrides(optional extra configuration properties)
   .buildApi(TheApi.class);  // or buildView(Abstraction.class)

In the your case, you want to build the SQS api, and since that API is not yet supported in
a "portable abstraction" such as the ComputeService or the BlobStore, you can create it with
the "buildApi"
method. Something like:

SQSApi sqs = ContextBuilder.newBuilder("aws-sqs")
   .credentials("access key", "secret key")

You can read a quick intro to the basic jclouds concepts here [2].
