Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service. It offers reliable, highly scalable, reliable messaging and transaction processing that lets you decouple tasks or processes that must communicate.
JotForm is a cloud-based form automation solution that enables users to publish online forms and record customer responses. It helps users to generate leads, collect order payments, conduct customer surveys, manage job applications, and register guests for events.

Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS. is a distributed queuing service developed by Amazon. It allows you to decouple the components of a cloud application that perform work and those that consume the work. The queuing service receives messages from producers and delivers them asynchronously to consumers.
Web applications use web services for sending and receiving data between them. Amazon SQS can be used as a queue to store data in the form of messages. It may also be used as a lock server to protect data from corruption. In addition, it can be used as a firewall.
JotForm is a web-based form builder that helps users to create online forms. Users can add or remove fields of their choice. Also, they can customize the look and feel of the online forms using available themes. JotForm supports file uploads, emails, text areas, dropdowns, etc. JotForm provides an API to access the data stored in its servers and it provides SDK libraries for various programming languages so that developers can integrate JotForm with other applications such as CRMs, ERPs, etc., to achieve desired results.
The integration of Amazon SQS and JotForm will allow exchanging data between both services. For instance, if there is an issue occurring in a database, we can use Amazon SQS as a buffer to store the error messages until the issue is resolved. When sending messages to Amazon SQS from JotForm, we have to provide information such as the queue name and the message body. The queue name can be identified by following the pattern " jotformAWSQueueName " where AWSQueueName is replaced with the actual queue name provided by JotForm. Once the message is sent, it is stored in Amazon SQS until it is deleted or delivered to JotForm.
Once we receive the message via Amazon SQS we can process it accordingly using JotForm API. To receive messages via Amazon SQS, we have to provide information such as queue name and the action which can be either "receive" or "delete". Then, if we choose "receive", we have to provide 2 parameters. wait time and timeout period; if we choose "delete" the parameter is not required. If the message has been received successfully we have to provide 4 parameters. response code, response message, HTTP status code and URL. Additionally, we need to provide an email address in case there are any issues when creating or updating a record in the database or when inserting new records into the tables.
Using Amazon SQS, we can exchange information between applications without depending on a single application, thereby improving performance and scalability of an application. In addition, using Amazon SQS can help us avoid overloading an application because we no longer have to send all messages directly to our application but instead we send them to Amazon SQS. On the other hand, using Amazon SQS will reduce the load on an application by allowing other applications that are interested in these messages to access them via Amazon SQS.
