"In the first half of this introduction to SimpleDB, I showed you how to leverage Amazon's own API to model a CRUD-style racing application. Aside from the obvious uniqueness for most Java developers of Amazon's string-only approach to data types, you might have found yourself looking at the Amazon API with some skepticism. After all, the APIs for leveraging a relational database are by now fairly standard and well-thought-out — and perhaps more important, they are familiar.
