Overview of this book

Expert AWS Development begins with the installation of the AWS SDK and you will go on to get hands-on experience of creating an application using the AWS Management Console and the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI). Then, you will integrate applications with AWS services such as DynamoDB, Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, Amazon SQS, and Amazon SWF. Following this, you will get well versed with CI/CD workflow and work with four major phases in the release process – Source, Build, Test, and Production. Then, you will learn to apply AWS Developer tools to your Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) workflow. Later, you will learn about user authentication using Amazon Cognito, and also how you can evaluate the best architecture as per your infrastructure costs. You will learn about Amazon EC2 service and will deploy an app using it. You will also deploy a practical real-world example of a CI/CD application with the Serverless Application Framework, which is known as AWS Lambda. Finally, you will learn how to build, develop, and deploy the Application using AWS Developer tools such as AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, AWS CodeDeploy, and AWS CodePipeline, as per your project requirements.

Amazon Kinesis

The Amazon Kinesis service is under the Analytics product category. This is a fully managed, real-time, highly scalable service. This service is used to collect, load, process, and analyze real-time massive-scale data. It can collect and process massive-scale data from multiple sources in real time. You can easily send data to other AWS services such as Amazon DynamoDB, AmazaonS3, and Amazon Redshift. You can ingest real-time data such as application logs, website clickstream data, IoT data, and social stream data into Amazon Kinesis. You can process and analyze data when it comes and respond immediately instead of waiting to collect all data before the process begins.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Amazon Kinesis streams
  • Troubleshooting tips for Kinesis streams
  • Amazon Kinesis Firehose
  • Troubleshooting tips for Kinesis Firehose

Now let's explore an example of using Kinesis streams and Kinesis Firehose using AWS SDK API for Java.
