This is a simple API to access Amazon SQS, EC2, SimpleDB, FPS and DevPayLS web services. It uses the QUERY interfaces. This code is thread-safe and works very reliably to the best of my knowledge. I've been using it on a system where sending messages in SQS is critical and we manage pools of servers on EC2.

This library is kept up to date with the most recent API changes and user feature requests. See the project page for more details. http://code.google.com/p/typica/

A tool for SimpleDB is also available. It's called sdbShell and supports all of the commands that the API supports and is especially useful for testing queries.

If you like to play with queries in SimpleDB, another associated tool is QueryTool, based on typica. http://coderslike.us/2009/09/18/querytool-now-exports-data/


Excellent Library
A well done library that also works great when integrated with JRuby. Are their plans to update it to reflect Amazon's new instance types?

great wrapper library for SQS and EC2
Typica is a really convenient library that allows easy access to EC2 and SQS. I started using it because unlike other projects, it doesn't require some specific versions of 3rd party libraries to access Amazon's infrastructure. I haven't had any problems with it and it's really well supported by the author. So far, a new release has been pushed almost every week since I have started to look at it for the first time, which indicates that the author is still actively trying to improve it. I can highly recommend typica for anyone who uses Java to drive the AWS API since it's extremely simple to use and allows to rapidly include Amazon's services into any application. It really sets new standards for open source projects, it's well documented, author-backed and as far as I can tell, it's mostly bug-free. Cheers, Florian Leibert
