A customer of us wants to use the HS3 protocol to access the HCP, Is there an SDK available for them to use or is the strategy to use the AWS S3 SDK and for the other/extra REST functionality use the HCP REST SDK?
Yes that is the strategy that should be taken. Keep in mind that there are extensions to the S3 protocol against HCP where custom headers can be used to specify retention, et al. So using the HCP REST depends on what you want to accomplish.
We don't have any examples of the new S3 extensions (custom headers) in action, other than a somewhat hard to find example using s3curl in the online help. Is there anyone who would be able to update any of the java sample code included in our help or elsewhere on our community with a practical example of one of our new extensions in use? Say x-hcp-retention in either say java or maybe Boto with Python?
