TryDaxTests.java

The TryDaxTests.java file contains methods that perform read operations against a test table in Amazon DynamoDB. These methods are not concerned with how they access the data (using either the DynamoDB client or the DAX client), so there is no need to modify the application logic.

You can modify the program in several ways; for example:

  • Modify the queryTest method so that it uses a different KeyConditionExpression.

  • Add a ScanFilter to the scanTest method, so that only some of the items are returned to you.

Note

To run this program, you can setup Maven to use the client for the DAX SDK for Java and the AWS SDK for Java as dependencies. For more information, see Using client as Apache Maven dependency.

Alternatively, you can download and include both the DAX Java client and the AWS SDK for Java in your classpath. See Java and DAX for an example of setting your CLASSPATH variable.
