API to develop a Swift client

asked 2011-12-20 12:39:03 -0500

Hello everyone,

I'm starting to study about openstack cloud and i get really excited about the openstack object storage module, but i'm having a lot of difficulties to find a way to develop a client (simple one) to acess a swift already runnig in a computer.

I know that a can acess swift using cyberduck, for example, but i had some difficulties to do it, so i dicided to develop one with a simple GUI. Although i want to starting developing i didn't find any API to do that. There is any API (in java or phyton) that a i can use t o access swift? there is some compatibility of amazon web service sdk with swift??

I imagine use somethig like this: http://aws.amazon.com/pt/sdkforjava/ (AWS SDK for Java ) to implement my client.

Thank you for your attention!

Hello again,

I forgot to tell you that Ciberduck uses the java-cloudfiles.jar you can download the source code and see it.
