Now, it’s easier to use Amazon DynamoDB local, the downloadable version of DynamoDB, to help you develop and test your DynamoDB applications by using the new DynamoDB local Docker image.

With the new DynamoDB local Docker image, you can build and prototype applications quickly by using a version of DynamoDB running in your development environment with all the dependencies and necessary configuration built in. The new Docker image also enables you to include DynamoDB local in your containerized builds and as part of your continuous integration testing. Using DynamoDB local does not require an internet connection and DynamoDB local works with your existing DynamoDB API calls. There are no provisioned throughput, data storage, or data transfer costs with DynamoDB local.

DynamoDB local is now available to download as a self-contained Docker image or a .jar file that can run on Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS, and other platforms that support Java.

To learn more about the new DynamoDB local Docker image, see the DynamoDB local public repository on Docker Hub.
