How can you tell if an object is a folder on AWS S3


I doesn’t appear in the meta data–whether an object is a folder or not. Is there a specific method you guys on SO know of? I can’t find anything of worth in Google search.


I don´t know if this response it will be usefull after so long, but here we go:

To resolve this problem you have to do this in java:

With the method “endsWith(“/”)” you can detect if the S3ObjectSummary is a folder or not.

Hope this can helps someone.
