The Temporary Queue Client for Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) is now available. The client supports common messaging patterns such as request-response, and helps you save development time and deployment costs when creating application-managed temporary queues.

The client maps multiple temporary queues onto a single Amazon SQS queue automatically, allowing your application to make fewer API calls and achieve higher throughput. When a temporary queue is no longer in use, the client cleans up the temporary queue automatically. 

Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service that enables you to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. Amazon SQS eliminates the complexity and overhead associated with managing and operating message-oriented middleware, and empowers developers to focus on differentiating work. 

For more information about Amazon SQS, see Amazon SQS and Temporary Queues in the Amazon SQS Developer Guide. To get started with the new Temporary Queues Client, download the library from AWS Labs on GitHub and read the AWS blog.
