http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSECommerceService/latest/DG/

And the ruby-aaws gem. There's examples in the gem.

just getting started with some simple searches and im getting a HTTP
response code 400

i have the .amazonrc file setup and url path looks pretty accurate
with my associate key
not really sure how to debug why url and amazon dont get along

any ideas?

added $DEBUG = TRUE to application controller
now see the error with more detail

Warning! Failed to sign request. No OpenSSL support for SHA256 digest.

i updated to ruby 1.9 / rails 2.3.5 and can now talk to amazon

yay!
