To delete the Movies table:

  1. Copy and paste the following program into the Program.cs file, replacing its current contents:

    using System; using System.Text; using Amazon.DynamoDBv2; using Amazon.DynamoDBv2.Model; namespace DynamoDB_intro { class Program { static void Main(string[] args) { // Get an AmazonDynamoDBClient for the local DynamoDB database AmazonDynamoDBClient client = GetLocalClient(); try { client.DeleteTable("Movies"); } catch (Exception ex) { Console.WriteLine("\n Error: the \'Movies\" table could not be deleted!\n Reason: " + ex.Message); Console.Write("\n\n ...Press any key to continue"); Console.ReadKey(); Console.WriteLine(); return; } Console.WriteLine("\n Deleted the \'Movies\" table successfully!"); } public static AmazonDynamoDBClient GetLocalClient() { // First, set up a DynamoDB client for DynamoDB Local AmazonDynamoDBConfig ddbConfig = new AmazonDynamoDBConfig(); ddbConfig.ServiceURL = "http://localhost:8000"; AmazonDynamoDBClient client; try { client = new AmazonDynamoDBClient(ddbConfig); } catch (Exception ex) { Console.WriteLine("\n Error: failed to create a DynamoDB client; " + ex.Message); return (null); } return (client); } } }
  2. Compile and run the program.
