Note: This API has been forked from FlickrJ at Sourceforge.
This is a Java API which wraps the REST-based Flickr API.
Comments and questions should be sent to the GitHub Repo.
To use the API just construct an instance of the class
com.flickr4java.flickr.test.Flickr and request the interfaces which you need to work with.
For example, to send a test ping to the Flickr service:
String apiKey = "YOUR_API_KEY"; String sharedSecret = "YOUR_SHARED_SECRET"; Flickr f = new Flickr(apiKey, sharedSecret, new REST()); TestInterface testInterface = f.getTestInterface(); Collection results = testInterface.echo(Collections.EMPTY_MAP);
Please note: this library is not thread safe.
###Setup for gradle
This API has been tested and built with JDK 1.8.
An API key is required to use this API. You can request one on Flickr.
- scribe-java (v.1.3.2 onwards) (required for the OAuth functionality).
- log4j (runtime dependency for logging)
<dependency> <groupId>com.flickr4java</groupId> <artifactId>flickr4java</artifactId> <version>2.18</version> </dependency>
Flickr4Java is now available on Maven Central so the above settings should be all you need (it used to only be available on JCenter.
The tests now run against captured responses from Flickr (see
src/test/resources/payloads) and don't contact the Flickr API at all.
This means there is no longer any need to create a test account and populate a properties file.
