Notes on SimpleDB

While using Amazon Simple DB I have run into some issues which required quite a lot of digging to resolve. I have listed them here.

Perl

Conclusion: Amazon SimpleDB seems to be not very well supported on Perl. There is a lot of examples that are in Perl, most of which do it very low level. This is fine for a command line interface, or monitoring, or a utility, but not as a general API for DB access.

UPDATE I have discovered CPAN "SimpleDB::Client" and "SimpleDB::Class" - that may be the answer to my problems. Will get back to you.

TODO: Work out best Perl API/system to use.

Complex Attributes
