This is the portable counterpart of SDB Explorer, a simple-to-use software utility designed to help you connect to and manage Amazon SimpleDB accounts. It comes packed with several handy features, such as the ability to import data from CSV files and MySQL databases.
No installation necessary, aside from Java
As there is no setup pack involved, you can save the program files to a custom location on the hard disk and just click the executable to launch SDB Explorer. Another possibility is to copy it to a USB flash drive in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort, as long as Java is installed.
An important aspect worth taking into consideration is that the app does not modify Windows registry settings, so it doesn't increase the risk of system stability issues.

Configure program preferences
As far as app customization is concerned, you can select the region endpoint, data path and number of results to display per page, apply proxy settings, set the number of threads you want to run parallel in queue, as well as pick the queue container size.
