S3 in Pharo

January 5, 2011 22:03:48.354

Sven Van Caekengergh has implemented an S3 client for Pharo Smalltalk:

I implemented and published a Pharo client for Amazon's AWS S3 service called ZnAWSS3Client. For some background, see the Amazon docs. The code can be found in the package 'Zinc-AWS' in Squeak Source. It depends on both Zinc HTTP Components and XML Support (an excellent package BTW) as well as on the cryptography functionality in Pharo (md5, sha1 & hmac). Basically, Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is an online storage web service where you store and retrieve objects under keys organized in groups called buckets. Objects can be any web resource identified by a mime type. The main advantage is that S3 is a highly scalable, reliable, secure, fast, inexpensive service.
