Amazon has announced a new Amazon Web Services SDK for Java. The AWS SDK for Java provides a Java API for AWS infrastructure services, making it easier for developers to build applications that tap into the AWS cloud. Using the SDK, developers can build solutions for Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon SimpleDB, and more. Amazon has also updated their AWS Toolkit for Eclipse.
The SDK includes:
* An AWS Java library – This single jar file provides a set of developer-friendly APIs that hide much of the low-level plumbing associated with programming for the AWS cloud, including authentication, retries, and error handing. The library supports most of our current services and their latest features of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Auto Scaling, Amazon CloudWatch, Elastic Load Balancing, the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, Amazon SimpleDB, the Amazon Simple Storage Service, the Amazon Simple Queue Service, the Amazon Relational Database Service, and Amazon Elastic MapReduce and it will also continue to support new features and services as we roll them out.
* Code Samples – The SDK includes practical examples in Java to show you how to build applications that make use of AWS.
* Eclipse Support – Now you can use the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse to add the AWS Java SDK to an existing project, or create a new Java project based on the AWS Java SDK with a few clicks.
* Documentation – The SDK has a Getting Started Guide along with reference documentation for the library and for AWS.
