Working with Lucee/ColdFusion and the AWS Java SDK


Over the past couple of months, I have been working on a portal for our Amazon Web Services Customers. It has been quite an experience and I have learned a ton of new things about the ins and outs and inner workings of AWS. Although I am an Associate Certified AWS Solutions Architect, studying the documentation and working with the AWS console doesn’t reveal some of the underlying features or requirements of their systems.
