Amazon Web Services

Many of the steps in using the Amazon web services mirror those of the Google web services. There is a beta kit that you download, you have to register in order to get a key, a Java library is provided along with a sample application, and so on.

The Amazon people have not gone to quite so much trouble to hide the underlying complexities, so the process of getting code running is a bit more involved than with Google. On the other hand, you get a more realistic experience of engaging with web services. There were some bugs which prevented compilation in the beta version of the Amazon kit at the time I downloaded it. However it is possible to resolve all these and get code running.
