SOAP-Amazon-S3 (0.0401) ***

After working with Net::Amazon::S3 for about an hour and failing miserably, I decided to give this module a try. I was up and running in less than 5 minutes.

That said, later on I found that I needed more than SOAP::Amazon::S3 could offer. I needed to set HTTP headers, but for some reason SAS limits you to only setting content type. I also needed to upload large files, but the way that SAS uploads stuff doesn't work with large files. So I resorted back to Net::Amazon::S3, and finally got it working.

If you're needs are small, use SOAP::Amazon::S3, as it's easy as pie to use.

SOAP-Amazon-S3 (0.023) ****

Based on preliminary testing under light load. Much simpler than the Amazon supplied REST library or Net::Amazon::S3.

I haven't thought about all the implications of this, but I think the interface may be improved slightly by modifying the putobject method or maybe adding a putfile method. So, instead of:

$bucket->putobject( $obj_key, $obj_data, { 'Content-Type' => $mime_type } )

I would suggest:

$bucket->putobject( $obj_key => {

data => ' ... ',

'Content-Type' => $mime_type,


$bucket->putobject( $obj_key => {

file => '/path/to/file',

'Content-Type' => $mime_type,

Hope that makes sense.

Thank you for your work. Sincerely appreciated.
