Java API For Flickr. Fork of FlickrJ

Flickr4Java

Introduction

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.

Usage

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.

Requirements

This API has been tested with JDK 1.5 and JDK 1.6. The default distribution is built with JDK 1.5 (it builds and runs fine under 1.6 and 1.7 too though).

An API key is required to use this API. You can request one on Flickr.

Required libraries

Download

Download the latest version from bintray.

Flickr4Java is now available on Maven Central so the above settings should be all you need (it used to only be available on JCenter.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
