Has anyone tried accessing the Amazon web services (AWS) API from Mathematica? I'm assuming the HTTP WebService module of Mathematica would be a starting point. Any suggestions on getting started would be welcome. The following example from the documentation is not working:

Needs /@ {"WebServices`", "JLink`"};
  InvokeServiceOperation::httpcode: 404 (HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found) >>

this is probably the wrong end of the Amazon, but it could be a start. – cormullion Apr 20 '13 at 8:00
It seems that a number of Web Services in the Mathematica documentation are deprecated. In particular, the Amazon example leads to a 404 error. It would be great to have examples that actually work. – user7272 May 3 '13 at 20:54
The link goes to Amazon API Gateway, which is a service within AWS, not an API in itself. It is unclear what API you want to access. – C. E. May 31 at 14:15

You can get started using the following code. It currently connects to the AWS SES service but should be easily extended.Git Hub

For completeness, can you give a short demonstration of the code you linked to? – J. M. Nov 14 '15 at 14:38
