A Java library to enable core Spring Framework dependency injection support and eliminate some boilerplate around AWS Lambda.
When using Java with AWS Lambda, AWS requires you to either implement one of
their base interfaces (
RequestStreamHandler), or provide
a class with a single method
handle(T input, Context context). This library
leverages the interface-based approach. When deploying the function, you need
to point Lambda to your "main handler" class, which serves as the entry point
to your application.
The main usage is simple: import this library as a dependency and extend one of
the main abstract classes in
me.ccampo.spring.aws.lambda as your main handler
class. You will be forced to implement the
getApplicationContext method, which
is where you will provide the instance to your Spring application context class,
which will be used throughout the rest of the application.
Once you have provided an
ApplicationContext, you can use Spring's dependency
injection features anywhere besides in your
MainHandler class. This means you
can take the annotation driven approach, use autowiring, etc.
The abstract handler classes in this library actually use the provided
ApplicationContext instance to find a bean of type
main interface) and call it's
handleRequest method, so most of your
application logic should not be in your
MainHandler class, but rather in a
separate bean of type
The main pattern I recommend is creating a fairly empty
MainHandler class that
implements one of this library's interfaces, supplies an
and then does nothing else. Additionally, you create another implementation of
RequestHandler and register it as a bean (either manually in your Spring
configuration or using annotations such as
@Component). This custom
RequestHandler can then take advantage of all of Spring's dependency
injection tools. You are free to implement your application logic in there, or
split it out over several, loosely coupled classes, using Spring dependency
injection to wire it all together.
