Does Simple Savant connect to SimpleDb via HTTPS?

Hi Ashley,

   Rather than assuming "yes", I thought I'd better ask.  All AWS documentation urges HTTPS connections to SimpleDB, but apparently it still allows REST to use HTTP.  The .Net library they supply uses HTTPS exclusively, which is another strong indicator of the outcome.  So does Simple Savant connect via HTTPS?  Thanks!

Simple Savant runs on top of the AWS SDK which uses https by default. To connect via http you must customize the AmazonSimpleDBConfig used by Savant as shown below:


var savantConfig = new SavantConfig();
var simpleDbConfig = new AmazonSimpleDBConfig
		ServiceURL = ""
var simpleDbClient = new AmazonSimpleDBClient(AppSettings.Default.AwsAccessKeyId, AppSettings.Default.AwsSecretKey, simpleDbConfig);
var savant = new SimpleSavant(simpleDbClient, savantConfig);

HTTPS is just what I hoped - thanks for all your help!
