Working with Amazon SWF APIs

In addition to using the Amazon SDKs that are described in Development Options, you can use the HTTP API directly.

To use the API, you send HTTP requests to the SWF endpoint that matches the region that you want to use for your domains, workflows and activities. For more information about making HTTP requests for Amazon SWF, see Making HTTP Requests to Amazon SWF.

This section provides basic information about using the HTTP API to develop your workflows with Amazon SWF. More advanced features, such as using timers, logging with CloudTrail and tagging your workflows are provided in the section, How Amazon SWF Works.
