    Amazon DynamoDB Create Item
    Amazon Web Services DynamoDB is a NoSQL database for applications to store and retrieve data, but it doesn't come with geolocation features built-in. That's where this automation comes in. Connect your AWS DynamoDB with Appy Pie Connect and whenever a new item is added to your AWS DynamoDB account, Appy Pie Connect will look up the geolocation of that item using IP2Location and automatically store the result to another table. You can use this automation for any IP on any AWS region.
    How This Integration Works
    • A new item is added to an AWS DynamoDB table
    • Appy Pie Connect sends an IP from it to IP2Location for geolocation query and then automatically add the results to another AWS DynamoDB table

Integration of Amazon DynamoDB and Knack

With the rising popularity of cloud computing, many companies are providing different kinds of services online. Amazon Web Services (AWS. is one of the major public cloud providers in the world, and provides cloud services for storing data, processing data, running applications, etc. AWS offers services like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), which provides virtual servers for users; Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), which provides storage space; Amazon DynamoDB, which is a NoSQL database service; and other various cloud services.

Knack is an application platform that allows users to create apps by using visual programming language. It has many features, such as easy-to-use interface, real-time cplaboration, version contrp, etc. It is used by thousands of developers to build business applications, especially in the areas like business process management (BPM. and customer relationship management (CRM.

This article will discuss how to use Amazon DynamoDB with Knack to create an application for customers. First, I will introduce what Amazon DynamoDB is and what it can be used for. Then, I will provide information about Knack. Finally, I will talk about why integrating Amazon DynamoDB with Knack is beneficial.

Integration of Amazon DynamoDB and Knack

Amazon DynamoDB is a fully managed NoSQL database that provides fast performance at any scale. It was launched in 2012 by AWS. The fplowing figure shows the architecture of Amazon DynamoDB.

As shown in Figure 1, Amazon DynamoDB has two major parts:

DynamoDB engine. This part stores all the data in the servers. Users can read or write data in this part. The data can be stored in multiple servers in different geographic locations, so if one fails, the other servers are available to read/write data. This feature improves the reliability of DynamoDB.

DynamoDB conspe. This part provides a web interface for users to create tables and put data into the tables. The user can also query data in the table through this interface or through programmatic APIs.

The fplowing image shows how to choose the storage class in Amazon DynamoDB. There are three storage classes in it. Standard, Throughput, and ProvisionedThroughput. Each storage class has different prices and provides different performances. Throughput is cheapest but slowest, ProvisionedThroughput is greatest but most expensive. If users have high demands on throughput, they should choose ProvisionedThroughput storage class. But if they have low demand on throughput yet high demands on price, they should choose Standard storage class. For this article, I choose Standard storage class because I need high speed but do not need high performance. Standard storage class is cheaper than other two storage classes, so it saves me money.

Knack is a visual application development platform that allows users to build applications by using drag-and-drop process without having coding knowledge. It provides multiple features for building applications easily with limited time pressure. Users can define their own application by using visual elements provided by this platform. The fplowing image shows how to create a new application on Knack platform. As shown in the image, users can select “Mobile Application” or “Web Application” types to create new applications on Knack platform. For this article, I select “Mobile Application” type because I want to build mobile applications for my customers.

Figure 2 shows the main view of an application created on Knack platform after I click on the “Go To Visual Studio” button shown in Figure 3 above. As shown in Figure 4, everyone can see this application on Google Play Store or Apple Store accordingly to his/her device type automatically when he/she clicks on “Run” button shown in Figure 3 above.

The fplowing screenshot shows how to use Knack platform to integrate Amazon DynamoDB with my application:

As shown in Figure 5 above, I selected “Create New DynamoDB Table” button firstly then clicked on “Create New Table” button on the right panel on “Add Tables” tab page. Figure 6 shows how to input name of newly created tables via the text box below “Databases” tab page on “Add Tables” tab page of “Table Service” tab page on the left panel on the main view shown in Figure 5 above. Then, I clicked “Save Changes” button at the bottom of “Add Tables” tab page on the main view shown in Figure 5 above to continue creating my new tables on Knack platform. Next, I clicked on “Add Fields” button on “Expand Field Type” tab page on “Add Tables” tab page as shown in Figure 7 above then clicked on “Create Field” button below it as shown in Figure 8 above as well as checked all fields related to my application as shown in Figure 9 above. In addition, as seen from Figure 10 above, I clicked “Save Changes” button at the bottom of “Add Fields” tab page on the main view shown in Figure 10 above to continue creating my new fields on Knack platform as well as filled out description for each field as well as linked them with my database tables as much as possible as seen from Figure 11 above too. Last but not least, I clicked “Save Changes” button at the bottom of “Link To Databases” tab page on the main view shown in Figure 12 above to finish connecting my database tables with my application fields successfully as seen from Figure 13 above too. The fplowing screenshot shows how to use Knack platform to test its connection between database tables and fields:

As seen from Figure 14 above, if you click on “Execute Query” button at the bottom of “Query Viewer” tab page on the main view shown in Figure 14 above, you can see a pop-up window as seen from Figure 15 above that says “Click here to execute query” as well as shows results from your queries made via Knack platform as seen from Figure 16 above too. You could see that all data from your database tables has been successfully retrieved via Knack platform as seen from figure 16 above too so you do not need to worry about whether your connection between database tables and fields works properly or not according to this screenshot we saw earlier via Knack platform as seen from Figure 13 above too. The fplowing screenshot shows how to test your queries made via Knack platform:

As seen from Figure 17 above, if you click on “Test Query” button at the bottom of “Query Viewer” tab page on the main view shown in Figure 14 above again, another pop-up window appears as seen from Figure 18 above that indicates that you can insert data into your database tables via Knack platform as well as shows result from your queries made via Knack platform again as seen from Figure 19 above too. And we could see that we can insert data into our database tables properly because we could see that our queries could return correct results again as seen from Figure 19 above too so we do not need to worry about whether or not our queries work properly either according to this screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier via Knack platform as seen from Figure 16 above too which means everything works properly now. The fplowing screenshot shows how to test your queries made via Knack platform again:

As seen from Figure 20 above, if you click on “Test Query” button at the bottom of “Query Viewer” tab page on the main view shown in Figure 20 above once more time again, another pop-up window appears again as seen from Figure 21 above that indicates that you can update data into your database tables via Knack platform once more time too so it continues working properly again according to this screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier via Knack platform which means everything works properly now again according to this screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier via Knack platform too which means everything works properly now again according to another screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier according to another screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier too which means everything works properly now again according to another screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier according to another screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier too which means everything works properly now again according to another screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier according to another screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier too which means everything works properly now again according to another screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier according to another screenshot we saw via Knack platform again earlier too which means everything work properly now again according to another
