AWS AppSync released today three new features for storing and syncing app data: Pipeline Resolvers, Delta Sync, and support for Aurora Serverless.
Pipeline Resolvers allows you to break up resolvers (the code that runs in response to a network request) into multiple steps, share code across resolvers, and orchestrate calls requiring multiple data sources. These new capabilities unlock new scenarios for data aggregation and authorization in a GraphQL API. You can mix and match actions from any supported data source such as Amazon DynamoDB, AWS Lambda, or HTTP endpoints.
An Aurora Serverless Data Source is now built in, enabling you to access Aurora Serverless using GraphQL. This functionality leverages the new Aurora Serverless Data API to efficiently manage connections and allows customers to leverage a relational database within AppSync without using a Lambda function as the intermediary.
You can read more about these new features in the AppSync Developer Guide.
