Amazon FPS Library for VB.Net

aws_logo.gif Amazon released a C# Demo for FPS, but not a VB.Net one. Since VB.Net is my preferred language, I converted the C# library to VB.Net.

It would seem that Amazon will probably continually release new versions of the WSDL in C# – to avoid having to convert it every time and to make future upgrades easy, I wrapped the WSDL in a seperate DLL. In the future, all that will need to be done to upgrade it is to replace the WSDL source file in the DLL project and rebuild.

This isn’t a download and run project – FPS is much more complicated than that. Once you extract the zip file, make sure you follow the instructions in the ReadMe.txt file – there is much to do!

I’m also working on a quick-start guide that covers some of the things I learned while trying to get FPS working. I should have that out in the next day or two.

The biggest pointer I can give you right now is: When you are building your keystore, a potentially confusing process, you can do it with the openssl for Windows project, which you can download here.

You can download the source files for the FPS VB.Net Library here.

    Phil, This is great news. I actually am a big fan of C# and use it now instead of just because I love over complicating things. Good find on the Win32 OpenSSL link.
