Adobe Sign Java SDK


Adobe Sign SDK aims at providing an easy way to integrate the Adobe Sign RESTful web service into client applications through easy to consume client side objects wrapping the REST API functionality. This repository contains Adobe Sign’s SDK in Java to integrate with Adobe Sign v6 REST APIs.

Table of contents


For the building of Adobe Sign Java SDK, the client machine should have the following software installed:

  • OS: Windows/Mac/Linux
  • Java JDK: version 1.8 or above
  • Maven: 3.3.3 version or above
  • Gradle: 2.11 version or above

Requirements for Building the SDK

Building the API client library requires Maven for Java 8 or Gradle for Java (8 or above) to be installed.


To install the API client library to your local repository:

At first generate the JAR either by executing:

mvn package

Then manually install the following JARs:

  • target/swagger-java-client-1.0.0.jar
  • target/lib/*.jar


gradle build

Then manually install the following JARs:

  • build/libs/swagger-java-client-1.0.0.jar

Getting Started

The Adobe Sign clients need to follow the below steps in order to get started with it:

  1. In order to use the SDK, you need to have an account with Adobe Sign. Please register for a developer account here.

  2. Sign in to create an application on the Adobe Sign web portal and obtain it's application id and application secret.

  3. Generate the OAuth access token by using the above application id and the application secret. The access token will need to be generated by using the OAuth APIs.

  4. Use the generated OAuth access token for trying out the sample API code given below.

Now Please follow the installation instructions and execute the following Java code:

Sample SDK Usage

import io.swagger.client.ApiClient;
import io.swagger.client.ApiException;
import io.swagger.client.api.AgreementsApi;
import io.swagger.client.api.BaseUrisApi;
import io.swagger.client.api.TransientDocumentsApi;
import io.swagger.client.model.AgreementCreationResponse;
import io.swagger.client.model.AgreementInfo;
import io.swagger.client.model.BaseUriInfo;
import io.swagger.client.model.FileInfo;
import io.swagger.client.model.ParticipantSetInfo;
import io.swagger.client.model.ParticipantSetMemberInfo;
import io.swagger.client.model.TransientDocumentResponse;

 * This sample client demonstrates how to send a new agreement.
 * <p>
 * <p>
 * Following workflow has been implemented here :
 * <li> Call base uris api to fetch api access point to invoke further API calls.</li>
 * <li> Create a transient document and get transient document id.</li>
 * <li> Prepare agreement info and create an agreement using the transient document.</li>
 * <li> Send the agreement.</li>
 * <li> Display agreement details.</li>
 * </p>
public class SendAgreementUsingTransientDocument {

It's recommended to create an instance of ApiClient per thread and per user (with baseUris fetched for user) in a multithreaded environment to avoid any potential issues.
