The adapter allows you to access data in Amazon DynamoDB using a standard database-like interface. Amazon DynamoDB is a highly scalable NoSQL cloud database that is very different from a regular database. In this section we describe how we model schemaless Amazon DynamoDB tables as regular Tables and Stored Procedures.
The adapter can dynamically detect schemas at connection time. See Automatic Schema Discovery for more information on defining schemas implicitly at connection time. This method is useful if the structure of your data is volatile.
You can also persist schemas in static schema definitions. The adapter's schema files have a simple format. See Custom Schema Definitions for more information on defining and extending static schemas.
