'AWS' Java 'SDK' for R

Installs the compiled Java modules of the Amazon Web Services ('AWS') 'SDK' to be used in downstream R packages interacting with 'AWS'. See <> for more information on the 'AWS' 'SDK' for Java.



This R package bundles the AWS SDK for Java jar files to be used in downstream R packages.

Why the name?

This is an R package to interact with AWS, but S is so 1992.

What is it good for?

The bundled Java SDK is useful for R package developers working with AWS so that they can easily import this package to get access to the Java jar files. Quick example on using the Amazon S3 Java client:

> library(rJava)
> kc <- .jnew('')
> kc$getS3AccountOwner()$getDisplayName()
[1] "foobar"

For a more complete yet simple example implementation, see the AWR.KMS package hosted on CRAN and GitHub.


CRAN version

The package is hosted on CRAN, so installation is as easy as:


But you can similarly easily install the most recent version of the SDK from the development git repository as well thanks to drat:

install.packages('AWR', repos = '')

If you want to install a specific version of the AWS SDK, then refer to the version tag, eg installing 1.11.76:

install.packages('', repos = NULL)


The R package versioning follows the AWS SDK for Java versions, so see for the list of changes.
