New Features

Change Description
Amazon Simple Email Service Domain Verification

Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) now supports domain verification, which enables customers to verify an entire domain and then send email from any address on that domain.

Domains can be verified via the AWS Management Console or via the Amazon SES API. Using this feature via the AWS Management Console is also fully integrated with Amazon Route 53 for customer-managed domains. For more information, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide.

Amazon EC2 Marketplace Support

The AWS Marketplace is an online store that helps customers find, compare, and immediately start using the software they need to build products and run their businesses in the AWS cloud. The new Amazon EC2 client provides support for AWS Marketplace product codes.

For more information, see the Amazon EC2 release notes.

Obfuscation and Proguard

Bundled jars are no longer obfuscated in this release. Users interested in obfuscated and optimizing their code should use Proguard with their app. Please review Proguard.html in SDK release for more information.


Enhanced logging capabilities are available in this release. For more information on logging options, please review Logging.html included with the SDK release.

Object Persistence Model

The AWS SDK for Android now provides two easy ways to store and retrieve data in Amazon DynamoDB. You can use the AmazonDynamoDBClient object to send requests directly to Amazon DynamoDB, or you can use the high-level API in the AWS SDK for Android to annotate your objects and automatically map them into Amazon DynamoDB.

Please refer to the included sample application and article for more information on the use of this feature.

Object Persistence Model Sample App

The sample app shows how to leverage the new Object Persistence Model to map classes to Amazon DynamoDB tables.

Known Issues

Issue Description
Problems with Amazon DynamoDB over SSL We have seen issues using Amazon DynamoDB over SSL with Android v2.1. Android versions 2.2 and later all work with Amazon DynamoDB over SSL. To not use SSL change the client endpoint for Amazon DynamoDB as follows:
AmazonDynamoDBClient dynamoDbClient = new AmazonDynamoDBClient( credentials );
dynamoDbClient.setEndpoint( "" );
Use of DynamoDBMapper with Android 2.1 While the rest of the AWS SDK for Android is still supported on Android versions 2.1 and later, the Object Persistence Model, DynamoDBMapper, is only supported with Android versions 2.2 and later.
