Amazon DynamoDB local now supports the AWS SDK for Java 2.x

You now can use the AWS SDK for Java 2.x with DynamoDB local, the downloadable version of Amazon DynamoDB. With DynamoDB local, you can develop and test applications by using a version of DynamoDB running in your local development environment without incurring any additional costs. DynamoDB local does not require an internet connection, and it works with your existing DynamoDB API calls. 

To learn more about the AWS SDK for Java 2.x, see the official AWS SDK for Java – Version 2 on GitHub. For more information about DynamoDB local, see Setting Up DynamoDB Local (Downloadable Version).
