I'm trying to work with queues, I successfully posted messages and receive them synchronously. However, I'm trying to async.

I went through some links by SQS that suggest using the JMS client wrapper and it also mentions using it if you have a code that is integrated into a JMS client. But as I'm starting fresh, so any code example would be appreciated.

Providing the sample code using JMS with Amazon SQS that show how to asynchronously receive messages using JMS.

First, you need to implement the MessageListener interface:

class MyListener implements MessageListener {


    public void onMessage(Message message) {

        try {

            // Cast the received message as TextMessage and print the text to screen.

            if (message != null) {

                System.out.println("Received: " + ((TextMessage) message).getText());


        } catch (JMSException e) {





Then you need to set it as the MessageListener for a MessageConsumer:

// Create a consumer for the 'TestQueue'.

MessageConsumer consumer = session.createConsumer(queue);

// Instantiate and set the message listener for the consumer.

consumer.setMessageListener(new MyListener());

// Start receiving incoming messages.


// Wait for 1 second. The listener onMessage() method will be invoked when a message is received.
