    What version of DevTest are you on?

     

    Are you running any DevTest on AWS right now?

    Hi Bala,

     

    As mentioned by CA support, currently not supported. However, there is fair chance this might work as AMAZON SQS can be used as a JMS 1.1 messaging system (https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2014/12/29/amazon-sqs-client-libraries-for-java-messaging-service-now-available/).

     

    As with any JMS system we virtualize, get the client library amazon-sqs-java-messaging-lib.jar, add it to /lib/shared and your VSE should be able you receive and send messages to these queues.

     

    And speaking of the VSE, that might be the biggest challenge, your DevTest infrastructure topology: where are you going to run VSE? A full DevTest installation inside AWS, or a full on-premise DevTest installation that accesses the proxy JMS queues remotely? Or a hybrid solution where you run only the VSE in AWS?

     

    If you have a chance to test this, then let us know the results, the community will be interested to find out if this is a technology where we can virtualize.

     

    Cheers,

    Danny
