IBM's developerWorks is publishing a 3-part series on the use of AWS with Java, under the title Boost application development with Amazon Web Services. Written by Eric Giguere, the tutorial is described as follows:
This tutorial provides an overview of Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS exposes raw product information and key parts of Amazon.com technology to third-party developers for use in their applications. After describing how AWS works in general, the tutorial focuses on the main AWS service, called the Amazon E-Commerce Service (ECS). As part of this tutorial, you will develop a small Web application that uses ECS to display book and music information.
