An Akka HTTP based backend client for the AWS Java SDK v2

An Akka HTTP based backend client for the AWS Java SDK v2

This package contains an alternateve implementation for the Async HTTP Client provided by the AWS Java SDK v2. It utilizes non-blocking IO based on the Akka HTTP stack, offering a replacement to the built-in Netty HTTP stack.

It supports Scala 2.13+ and Scala 3.1+


Import the package from your favorite artifactory

ThisBuild / libraryDependencies += "de.spaceteams" %% "akka-aws-http-client" % <version>

(Optional) Exclude the Netty and Apache HTTP stacks form your AWS SDK dependencies. This is not strictly necessary, but it reduces your dependency tree by a lot.

ThisBuild / libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
    "" % "s3" % AmazonSdkVersion,
    "" % "sqs" % AmazonSdkVersion,
    "" % "dynamodb" % AmazonSdkVersion
    _ exclude ("", "netty-nio-client")
      exclude ("", "apache-client")

To make use of the client, plug it into your AWS SDKs client builder, eg.

implicit val actorSystem = ActorSystem()

val akkaClient = AkkaAwsHttpClient()

val s3Client = S3AsyncClient

The package does NOT provide an SPI interface for the AWS SDK. This is a deliberate choice, as it does not allow you to easily pass in the actorSystem, which sort of defeats the point. You may of course provide your own SPI interface using this client if you wish to do so.
