AWS SDK for Android is a library which was built to develop Android applications that leverage AWS using the AWS SDK for Android.
The SDK helps users remove the development complexity by providing Java APIs for many AWS services including Amazon S3, Amazon SQS, Amazon SNS, and DynamoDB.
Here are some key features of "AWS SDK for Android":
· Back application object models with Amazon DynamoDB
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Added support for default virtual private clouds (VPC) when launching EC2 instances. For more information see Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
· You can copy an AMI from one region to another, enabling you to quickly and easily launch consistent instances in more than one AWS region.
· Additional configuration tuning for Apache HttpClient now reduces overhead for sending requests. Applications should see latency reduction of a few milliseconds across the board, on all requests. This improvement will be most noticeable for applications running inside the AWS network on EC2 instances making requests to other services.
· The set of canonical regional service endpoints are fetched from cloudfront the first time they are needed, then used for the duration of the process's life. This introduces an insignificant but measurable latency the first time a web service client is constructed in this fashion.
