Hi, the most efficient is probably to watch a video about installing SDK in your Eclipse:

Hope it helps

Are you trying to install the AWS Toolkit for Eclipse? If so, note that is no longer supported by AWS, so I recommend that you take a look at the officially supported AWS Integrated development environments (IDE) Toolkits and Software development kits (SDKs).

  • I tried to insert the aws-java-sdk-1.12.508.jar file in the Build path > configure build path

    then to verify I enter this test code

    import; import; import;

    public class S3Example { public static void main(String[] args) { // Create an instance of the S3 client S3Client s3Client = S3Client.builder() .region(Region.US_EAST_1) // Replace with your preferred AWS Region .build();

         // List S3 buckets
         ListBucketsResponse response = s3Client.listBuckets();
         response.buckets().forEach(bucket -> System.out.println(;


    but the response is an error message as if nothing is working

  • Hi,

    Understood, so you want to make use of the AWS SDK in a Java project. What error message do you get? Have you tried managing this dependency (or external library) through Maven or Gradle instead of adding the jar directly in Eclipse? You can find multiple examples on the aws-doc-sdk-examples Github repository, including Maven pom.xml file to manage dependencies.
