Upload a File

The following example shows how to use the low-level Java classes to upload a file. It performs the following steps:

  • Initiates a multipart upload using the AmazonS3Client.initiateMultipartUpload() method, and passes in an InitiateMultipartUploadRequest object.

  • Saves the upload ID that the AmazonS3Client.initiateMultipartUpload() method returns. You provide this upload ID for each subsequent multipart upload operation.

  • Uploads the parts of the object. For each part, you call the AmazonS3Client.uploadPart() method. You provide part upload information using an UploadPartRequest object.

  • For each part, saves the ETag from the response of the AmazonS3Client.uploadPart() method in a list. You use the ETag values to complete the multipart upload.

  • Calls the AmazonS3Client.completeMultipartUpload() method to complete the multipart upload.
