What is JetS3t?

JetS3t is a free, open-source Java toolkit and application suite for the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). The toolkit provides Java programmers with a powerful yet simple API for interacting with S3 and managing data stored there, while the applications allow anyone to easily manage and interact with their S3 accounts.


JetS3t is licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0. In short, this license means JetS3t is free for commercial or non-commercial use and you may modify and/or redistribute it if you wish.

What does "JetS3t" mean?

JetS3t is pronounced "jet-set" and stands for Java S3 toolkit, with some extra letters added to make it into a real-ish word connoting high-flying, free-wheeling luxury. Come and join the jet-set, you won't regret it.

This project's main public web site is hosted in S3 at JetS3t Home

This is where general users of the JetS3t library and applications will find detailed documentation such as application manuals and programmer guides.

The public web site also provides access to an online version of the Cockpit application and links to JetS3t Downloads where the public release archives are made available.
