'AWS' Java 'SDK' for R

Make the compiled Java modules of the Amazon Web Services ('AWS') 'SDK' available to be used in downstream R packages interacting with 'AWS'. See < https://aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-java> for more information on the 'AWS' 'SDK' for Java.

This R package bundles the AWS SDK for Java jar files to be used in downstream R packages.

Why the name?

This is an R package to interact with AWS, but S is so 1992.

What is it good for?

The bundled Java SDK is useful for R package developers working with AWS so that they can easily import this package to get access to the Java jar files. Quick example on using the Amazon S3 Java client:

> kc <- .jnew('com.amazonaws.services.s3.AmazonS3Client')
> kc$getS3AccountOwner()$getDisplayName()
[1] "foobar"

For a more complete yet simple example implementation, see the AWR.KMS package hosted on CRAN and GitHub.


CRAN version

The package is hosted on CRAN, so installation is as easy as:


But you can similarly easily install the most recent version of the SDK from the development git repository as well thanks to drat:

install.packages('AWR', repos = 'https://daroczig.gitlab.io/AWR')

If you want to install a specific version of the AWS SDK, then refer to the version tag, eg installing 1.11.76:

install.packages('https://gitlab.com/daroczig/AWR/repository/archive.tar.gz?ref=1.11.76', repos = NULL)


The R package versioning follows the AWS SDK for Java versions, so see https://github.com/aws/aws-sdk-java/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md for the list of changes.
