Operations

The following describes components of Amazon SimpleDB operations.

  • Subscriber—Any application, script, or software making a call to the Amazon SimpleDB service.

    The AWS Access Key ID uniquely identifies each subscriber for billing and metering purposes.

  • Amazon SimpleDB Request—A single web service API call and its associated data that the subscriber sends to the Amazon SimpleDB service to perform one or more operations.

  • Amazon SimpleDB Response—The response and any results returned from the Amazon SimpleDB service to the subscriber after processing the request.

    The AWS Platform handles authentication success and failure; failed requests are not sent to the Amazon SimpleDB service.
