AWS SDK Grails Plugin

Coverage Status Build Status

Introduction

The AWS SDK Plugin allows your Grails application to use the Amazon Web Services infrastructure services.

The aim is to provide a lightweight amazonWebService Grails service wrapper around the official AWS SDK for Java.

The AWS SDK for Java provides a Java API for AWS infrastructure services, making it even easier for developers to build applications that tap into the cost-effective, scalable, and reliable AWS cloud.

The Grails plugin handles :

  • convenient Grails configuration/management of all AWS API clients for each AWS region,
  • easy access to all AWS API java clients through the amazonWebService Grails service wrapper.

Installation

Declare the plugin dependency in the BuildConfig.groovvy file, as shown here:

grails.project.dependency.resolution = {
    inherits "global"
    log "info"
    repositories {
        // your repositories
    }
    dependencies {
        // Workaround to resolve dependency issue with aws-java-sdk and http-builder (dependent on httpcore:4.0)
        build 'org.apache.httpcomponents:httpcore:4.2'
        build 'org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient:4.2'
        runtime 'org.apache.httpcomponents:httpcore:4.2'
        runtime 'org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient:4.2'
    }
    plugins {
        // here go your plugin dependencies
        runtime ':aws-sdk:1.10.0'
    }
}

Config

Create an AWS account Amazon Web Services, in order to get your own credentials accessKey and secretKey.

Add your AWS credentials parameters to your grails-app/conf/Config.groovy:

grails.plugin.awssdk.accessKey = {ACCESS_KEY}
grails.plugin.awssdk.secretKey = {SECRET_KEY}

Other Grails AWS Plugin

FYI, there is another great Grails AWS plugin with a different approach: its aim is to provide an easy "groovy" access to SES (through a groovy DSL) and S3 (through methods injection), based on JetS3 java lib. If you just need basic SES or S3 features, you might give it a try.

We decided to write our own AWS plugin because it did not meet our requirements:

  1. direct access to ALL AWS SDK for Java features including ALL AWS services, with custom client configuration,
  2. only AWS SDK for Java with a consistent way to access ALL AWS services,
  3. fast release update with 100% compatibility with AWS SDK for Java, as it is just a simple lightweight wrapper around the official java clients,
  4. no need for additional DSL/methods injection, since we found the AWS SDK for Java clients pretty straightforward to use
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
