Starting on January 1, 2025, Amazon DynamoDB local will no longer support major version 1.x and this version will no longer receive security patches or bug fixes. We are providing 12 months notice to give you time to perform the recommended upgrade from DynamoDB local version 1.x to version 2.x or higher. DynamoDB local version 2.x works with the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 11.x or newer and is compatible with the jakarta.* namespace for Maven project. DynamoDB local version 2.x can be used as a standalone JAR [1] with JRE 11.x or as a Docker image [2]. As a Maven dependency [3], DynamoDB local version 2.x works with Spring Boot 3 and frameworks like Spring Framework 6 and Micronaut 4 for building modernized, simplified, lightweight cloud native applications.

To determine which version of DynamoDB local you are currently using, use the -version command line option with the AWS CLI [4]. To migrate existing projects from DynamoDB local version 1.x to version 2.x, review your bootstrap script that downloads and runs the standalone JAR file, make sure you download the version 2.x image, upgrade to JRE 11.x or higher, and update your Maven project's code, if applicable, for compatibility with the jakarta.* namespace. To learn more about DynamoDB local version 2.x and how to use it in your local development and testing environment, review Setting up DynamoDB local [5] and the Usage notes documentation [4]. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to AWS Support [6].

Please be aware of the following timeline: Starting on January 1, 2025, DynamoDB local 1.x will no longer receive security patches or bug fixes. From now through January 1, 2025, you can initiate upgrades of Amazon DynamoDB local 1.x to version 2.x or higher at any time. Starting on January 1, 2025, the use of DynamoDB local 1.x for your applications will be limited to its existing feature set as of December 31, 2024.
