As we consistently strive to simplify the use of Amazon SimpleDB service, we are excited to share with you how you can manage your items in SimpleDB domains very conveniently using SDB Explorer. SDB Explorer allows you to perform fast and parallel edits in your data very easily, saving you time and money.
An Amazon SimpleDB domain is like a worksheet table. SDB Explorer provides a tabular view of your structured data Stored in SimpleDB domains. You can directly edit the data in table cells, without having to write any queries like we do in relational databases traditionally. You can double-click on the cell or press F2 key to edit the data in a cell. Once you are done with editing SDB Explorer marks that row as edited by putting an image in front of these rows.
In prior versions of SDB Explorer it was difficult to add multiple rows of data as you could add one by one only and you had to remember the attributes for each row. Now you can add multiple blank rows as you desire so you can add data to these new rows by directly editing cells in these rows. SDB Explorer will also identify the new rows by putting an image in front of those rows.
You can Delete multiple rows on single request. You can select the multiple rows and click on delete button, SDB Explorer marks deleted rows by adding an image.
When you are done with all your edits, click on Save button to save your changes.
SDBExplorer uses “BatchPutAttribute” and “BatchDeleteAttribute” commands to Add, Update and Delete multiple rows with minimum possible requests, which saves you money.
