Delete by Hashkey Using DynamoDB Mapper (Guide w/ Code Examples)

Deleting an item in a table using only the partition key is called a "delete by hash key" operation. In Java, you can use the DynamoDBMapper class to perform a delete by hash key, by creating an instance of the domain class you want to delete and specifying the primary key value.

In the following code, the DynamoDBMapper class is used to perform a delete by hash key, by creating an instance of the Product domain class, specifying the primary key value, and then calling the delete method. The delete method accepts an instance of the domain class object, and it works by checking the primary key value, if the primary key value is present in the item, the item will be deleted.

import com.amazonaws.services.dynamodbv2.datamodeling.DynamoDBMapper; public class DeleteByHashKeyExample { public static void main(String[] args) { // Create a new DynamoDBMapper AmazonDynamoDB client = AmazonDynamoDBClientBuilder.standard().build(); DynamoDBMapper mapper = new DynamoDBMapper(client); // Define the hash key value to delete String hashKeyValue = "123"; // Define the item to delete Product itemToDelete = new Product(); itemToDelete.setId(hashKeyValue); // Perform the delete mapper.delete(itemToDelete); } }
