About This Sample

The client portion of the sample is relatively straightforward — the user specifies a list of stock symbols, and the application retrieves quotes for these symbols from a financial web service.

This sample is provided to show two perspectives. First, how using SQS yields a great deal of reliability and scalability with a minimum amount of effort. Second, we will see how SQS has been encapsulated into a Microsoft Visual Studio component, which integrates SQS with the rapid application development nature of Visual Studio and facilitates easy re-use.

Based on the 2008-01-01 API version of SQS.


  • You must have a valid Amazon Web Services developer account.
  • You must be signed up to use SQS.
  • Requires Visual Studio C# 2008
