Amazon SQS CFC

I've just published the first version of a ColdFusion component for the Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS). The SQS CFC uses mostly the query interface to SQS' API, except for the sendMessage method, which uses REST. This is because the query interface version of sendMessage only allows messages with a maximum size of only 8 KB, whereas the REST interface allows messages up to the full 256 KB limit.

A known issue exists with the addGrant method, which, as of 20 Jun 2007, is returning "Service Unavailable."

It's now available at Google Code. Just download the zip file and insert your Amazon Web Services Access Key ID and Secret Access Key into index.cfm, and start queuing.

I've successfully setup ColdFusion to communicate with SQS but I can't find many resources for EC2 to read the SQS. The example from Amazon requires Java and I'm not very proficient. Do you have any examples to point me in the right direction? Thanks!
