The Web Developer’s Guide To Amazon E-Commerce Service

Big Changes And A Final Update To The Book Examples


Amazon has made some big changes to the Product Advertising API on which this book, and the code samples contained therein, are based. The changes are outlined here: February 21st, 2012 Changes.

They’ve deprecated (e.g. removed) support for a number of operations, stopped returning a lot of product details, and greatly limited the number of products returned by requests. I’m sure there are good technical reasons for these changes, but, as far as this book and the codes samples are concerned, there will be no more updates after this one. I’ve updated the samples to work with the latest WSDL, dated 8-1-2011, and indicated which samples no longer work.
