This fork has two goals:
- Allow use on Google App Engine
- Allow public applications via scribe oath library
The changes required were:
- Relax visibility of some XeroClient fields for subclassing
- Remove File I/O related PDF functions that are disallowed on GAE
- Add protected methods to change the HTTP client and pass optional extra parameters to it when invoked.
Comments/suggestions welcome to @aschroder.

Xero API private application access to Xero using Java
This is a simple project to show you how to use Java to access your Xero data via the Xero API. This project uses the 2-legged OAuth approach (OAuth 1.1a), referred to by the Xero API as Private Applications.
Step 1: Setup a Xero application
Follow the instructions here: http://blog.xero.com/developer/api-overview/setup-an-application/#private-apps
Step 2: Add your private key, consumer key and secret
Put your private key into: privateKey.pem Put your consumer key and secret into: xeroApi.properties
Step 3: Get the Schemas
Start with the modified Xero API schemas here: https://github.com/rossjourdain/XeroAPI-Schemas
They should be up to date but if not, you can get the latest Xero API schemas here: https://github.com/XeroAPI/XeroAPI-Schemas
Step 4: Download this project
Step 5: Add the schemas to src/main/resources/XeroSchemas/v2.00/
Step 6: Build and Hack
This project uses the following projects:
-- Maven JAXB2 Plugin - XML to Java Object Unmarshalling -- http://confluence.highsource.org/display/MJIIP/Maven+JAXB2+Plugin http://confluence.highsource.org/display/MJIIP/User+Guide
-- Java OAuth - OAuth implementation -- http://code.google.com/p/oauth/
