Subject Re: Commons VFS support for Amazon S3?
Date Sat, 24 Dec 2011 02:48:32 GMT
Instead of coding directly to S3, perhaps you can code to an
abstraction library such as jclouds
(http://www.jclouds.org/documentation/index)  and let them handle the
integration with the various cloud storage providers.  You would get
simplified testing and multi-provider support instead of an S3
specific implementation.
