This R package bundles the AWS SDK for Java
jar files to be used in downstream R packages.
This is an R package to interact with AWS, but S is so 1992.
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:
> library(rJava) > kc <- .jnew('com.amazonaws.services.s3.AmazonS3Client') > kc$getS3AccountOwner()$getDisplayName()  "foobar"
For a more complete yet simple example implementation, see the
AWR.KMS package hosted on CRAN and GitHub.
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
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
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.
