EOSIO SDK for Java: Android Example App

Software License Language Java

The EOSIO SDK for Java: Android Example App is a simple application demonstrating how to integrate with EOSIO-based blockchains using EOSIO SDK for Java. The application does two things: fetches your account token balance and pushes a transfer action.

  • Android SDK 6.0+
  • Android Studio 3.0+
  • JDK 1.7


To get the example application up and running:

  1. Clone this repo: git clone

  2. Open the project with Android Studio.

  3. Modify file:

    node_url=[your node endpoint URL] //mandatory
    from_account=[your account name] //optional
    to_account=[receiver account] //optional
    from_account_private_key=[your private key] //optional
    amount=[amount to transfer] //optional; e.g., 1.1234 EOS
    memo=[transfer memo] //optional
    private_keys=[for multiple key tests in instrumentation test] //optional

    from_account, to_account, from_account_private_key, amount, memo and private_keys are optional convenience properties which will prefill the app's form. node_url is required.

  4. Run the app.

About the App

The app demonstrates how to:

To do this we are using a few libraries and providers, in concert:

WARNING: Android 9 disables clear text traffic support by default so android:usesCleartextTraffic setting in AndroidManifest.xml is used to enable/disable the support depending on the build variant you use.

How to Transact contains basic sample code for constructing, signing and broadcasting transactions using the eosiojava libraries.

Set Up Your TransactionSession

First, set up your TransactionSession. This is your factory for creating new transactions:

  1. Create an instance of the AbiEosSerializationProviderImpl serialization provider from the eosiojavaandroidabieosserializationprovider library.
  2. Create an instance of the EosioJavaRpcProviderImpl RPC provider with an input string pointing to a nodeos RPC endpoint. You can also use EosioJavaRpcProviderImpl(String, Boolean) constructor to enable network debug log.
  3. Create an instance of the ABIProviderImpl ABI provider, instantiating it with the RPC and serialization provider instances.
  4. Create an instance of the SoftKeySignatureProviderImpl signature provider. (This particular implementation is not recommended for production use due to its simplistic management of private keys).
    • Import an EOS private key associated with the sender's account.
  5. Create an instance of TransactionSession, which is used for spawning TransactionProcessors.

Create, Sign and Broadcast Transactions

Now you're ready to create transactions using your TransactionSession:

  1. Create an instance of TransactionProcessor from the TransactionSession instance above by calling TransactionSession#getTransactionProcessor() or TransactionSession#getTransactionProcessor(Transaction).
  2. Call TransactionProcessor#prepare(List) with a list of Actions. The method will serialize the actions, which can always be queried with Transaction#getActions(). The transaction now is ready to be signed and broadcast.
  3. Call TransactionProcessor#signAndBroadcast() to sign the transaction inside TransactionProcessor and broadcast it.
