Amazon SNS to notify my WCF web service RRS feed

  • User-1778014415 posted

    Hi,

    I am working on a project where I deal with email bounces using Amazon SES.

    They offer SNS to notify me of events and right now I am getting email notifications. It is manual work to filter all my emails for specific json strings and I was wondering if theres a way I can automate the process.

    Can I can set up a web service (WCF or webAPI or asmx) so SNS can communicate directly to my own web service ?

    Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) is a web service that enables applications, end-users, and devices to instantly send and receive notifications from the cloud. You can accomplish these tasks using the AWS Management Console, which is a simple and intuitive web interface. 

    Above is copied from here http://docs.aws.amazon.com/sns/latest/gsg/Welcome.html

    Web Service can be implemented to GET notifications, search the specific string and send alert to relevant resource. Note that a stand alone or console or web application can implement the same functionality instead of a web service, where as Web service can be reused by number of clients.

    Amazon SNS provides a API, which can be utilised to interact with their Web Service to get notifications. Refer http://docs.aws.amazon.com/sns/latest/APIReference/Welcome.html

    Choosing the technology for Web services:- WCF is configuration based rather than convention based and it is not originally designed for RESTFul (Representational State ) services. ASP.NET Web API is light-weight framework to implement HTTP based RESTful services.

    WCF had the capibilities to run RESTful webservices since its first release (.Net Framework 3.0). It was just a little bit difficult to achieve it, but as of the second release (.Net Framework 3.5) it had all what's required to easily implement a RESTful service.
