Hot questions for Using Amazon S3 in aws java sdk 2.x

Top Java Programmings / Amazon S3 / aws java sdk 2.x

Question:

In the version 1 SDK, making a copy request was straightforward with:

new CopyObjectRequest(sourceBucket, sourceKey, destinationBucket, destinationKey)

In the version 2 SDK, the Builder for CopyObjectRequest does not have a clear way to set the source vs destination. There is a copySource(copySource) method which accepts a full path, but there is no obvious way to set the destination bucket or destination key or to set the source bucket and source key normally (without building a full path and dealing with URL encoding).

Their new S3 examples simply leave out how the new copy works and their JavaDoc for CopyObjectRequest has no real information for this.


Answer:

They have a pretty good example here on Github: https://github.com/awsdocs/aws-doc-sdk-examples/blob/master/javav2/example_code/s3/src/main/java/com/example/s3/CopyObject.java
