While some organizations have the skills and resources to protect their IT infrastructure from security threats, others are not able to do so. Organizations can either invest thousands of dollars in security tools or have state-of the-art security software. No…

Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), Amplify Serverless Framework Adds CLI Mocking & Testing. After a recent addition of machine learning functionality, Amazon Web Services Inc. has enhanced the capabilities of its Amplify framework, a cloud-powered serverless backend for mobile apps and Web apps. This includes mock-based testing. AWS recently added a Predictions category in its list of pre-trained machine intelligence models that developers can use in their apps. AWS announced last week new mocking and testing capabilities for AmplifyCLI, the command line interface that is used with the framework. Amplify CLI offers a unified toolchain that includes UI components, libraries, and a command line interface. This allows developers to add cloud services and backend resource to Web and mobile apps via CloudFormation. It provides a common language to describe and provision cloud infrastructure resources. The new mocking capability allows for faster iterative development by locally emulating the simplified cloud service API. This allows for faster testing without the need to resort to full-blown usage that requires overhead and management details. Although it does not simulate a full service API, the mocking capability provides basic functionality for testing purposes. AWS stated that the new mocking capability allows you to quickly test your changes without having to provision or update the cloud resources. This allows you to set up unit and integrated tests that can be run quickly, without having to impact your cloud backend. Depending on your app’s architecture, you can automate testing in your CI/CD pipeline. Initial mocking can be done by the Amplify service via CLI.

AppSync GraphQL APIs include resolver mapping templates, storage backed up by Amazon DynamoDB, and storage AWS Lambda functions can be invoked directly or as resolvers for a GraphQL API. Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) buckets are used for storage. Amazon…

AWS Amplify now works with Google’s Flutter SDK. AWS Amplify is now compatible with the Google Flutter software development tool. AWS Amplify provides a set of tools that allow developers to build scalable Web and mobile applications on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amplify allows you to connect and configure your app backends in minutes. You can also deploy static web apps in just a few clicks. It is also easy to manage app content outside of the AWS console, according AWS’ Amplify product website. Amplify supports development for iOS and Android, as well as React Native. Amplify for Flutter is now available to all users. It has been available in developer preview since August last year and was made generally available this month. Amplify can now access the Flutter open-source UI SDK stewarded Google. According to AWS, it’s “designed…for customers that have invested in Flutter ecosystem and want to take advantage the power of AWS.” AWS announced the release. AWS states that Amplify Flutter has been updated with key features since the developer preview. These include a GraphQL API backed up by AWS AppSync, as well as REST APIs and handlers that use Amazon API Gateway or AWS Lambda. The Amplify DataStore is also new. It allows users to work with “shared or distributed data” in both offline and online scenarios without writing any code. AWS also offers a “HostedUI” feature that allows for authentication and identity management. The announcement also mentions:

Authentication. Amplify Flutter is an interface that authenticates a user. It allows use cases such as Sign-Up, Sign In, and Multi-Factor authentication. It provides authorization to other Amplify categories. It also supports identity and user pools in Cognito. Storage. Amplify…
