Can I integrate Amazon S3 and/or Amazon CloudFront?

Reading this doc: I see I can upload files in a database or server file system, but, can I upload the file to Amazon S3, or even better, to Amazon CloudFront (a CDN)?

Let's say in my project, users can upload files, between 5 and 500 Megabytes, and these files (videos, pdf magazines, zip files) can be distributed massively, others users can buy these files using a client that uses SOAP to communicate with my WebRatio app, and accessing these files in Amazon server require authentication provided by my web app. In other words, not all people have access to these files,only who buy them, can download them, so I have to store this info and use it when users access files in Amazon.

Can I do that with WebRatio? Interact with S3 and CloudFront?

Apart from that, is it possible to see an uploading progress bar (and even a cancel button) when user uploads a large file?

Thanks a lot for your time. Ricardo.

Hello Ricardo,

you can interact and upload files to Amazon S3 by implementing a Custom Unit in WebRatio. Inside your custom unit you can use Amazon Java API in order to communicate with Amazon servers. If you want to use a guide that will help you to develope a Custom Unit, you can find it on our wiki Custom Unit Guide.

Thanks! I will try it out...

I guess the answer is the same for Amazon CloudFront.
