I'll pay someone to make me an exclusive AWS 4.0 script that is very easily customizable if any PHP developers are reading...

Does Amazon depreciate its older AWS info:

ie will AWS 3 sites stop working at some point thus requiring an upgrade to AWS 4?

My main gripes with AWS 3 were:

- lots of unavailable items (especially for products from 3rd parties)
- lots of items w/o images

Based on the press release, it looks like they added lots of new images. Even so, when I visited some of the AWS 4 sample sites mentioned by the press release, I still saw lots of unavailable items with no images.

Has anyone played around with the beta? If so, is there reason for hope?

likely eventually, but not for awhile (re: depreciation).

There are a lot more products (and images) available through AWS4. AWS3 likely won't be obsoleted for long time (probably not even by AWS5).

AWS can be used in any language that can understand XML

sweet! I was planning on using this technology in the future.

I'm playing with AWS 4 coding using PHP & NuSoap, and have been getting lots of prices showing up as 'unavailable'. Also, some of the sort value is returning as invalid, although it's in the SDK 4. (This is the site: www.discountbeautystore.com)

so: what's the real difference between aws 3 and 4, in practical terms?

03-24-2005, 12:36 AM
basically, what I notice that was important to me is, that AWS 3 was eating a lot more server resources and CPU usage, then AWS 4. Anybody else with me ?

Of course AWS 4 is better than AWS3, More simply XML parse..
