NEW: Subscribe to email notifications for releases and breaking changes.

This library allows you to quickly and easily use the SendGrid Web API v3 via Java.

Version 3.X.X of this library provides full support for all SendGrid Web API v3 endpoints, including the new v3 /mail/send.

This library represents the beginning of a new path for SendGrid. We want this library to be community driven and SendGrid led. We need your help to realize this goal. To help make sure we are building the right things in the right order, we ask that you create issues and pull requests or simply upvote or comment on existing issues or pull requests.

Please browse the rest of this README for further details.

We appreciate your continued support, thank you!

Quick Start

Hello Email

The following is the minimum needed code to send an email with the /mail/send Helper (here is a full example):

With Mail Helper Class

import com.sendgrid.*;
import java.io.IOException;

public class Example {
  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    Email from = new Email("test@example.com");
    String subject = "Sending with SendGrid is Fun";
    Email to = new Email("test@example.com");
    Content content = new Content("text/plain", "and easy to do anywhere, even with Java");
    Mail mail = new Mail(from, subject, to, content);

    SendGrid sg = new SendGrid(System.getenv("SENDGRID_API_KEY"));
    Request request = new Request();
    try {
      request.setMethod(Method.POST);
      request.setEndpoint("mail/send");
      request.setBody(mail.build());
      Response response = sg.api(request);
      System.out.println(response.getStatusCode());
      System.out.println(response.getBody());
      System.out.println(response.getHeaders());
    } catch (IOException ex) {
      throw ex;
    }
  }
}

The Mail constructor creates a personalization object for you. Here is an example of how to add to it.

Without Mail Helper Class

The following is the minimum needed code to send an email without the /mail/send Helper (here is a full example):

import com.sendgrid.*;
import java.io.IOException;

public class Example {
  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    try {
      SendGrid sg = new SendGrid(System.getenv("SENDGRID_API_KEY"));
      Request request = new Request();
      request.setMethod(Method.POST);
      request.setEndpoint("mail/send");
      request.setBody("{\"personalizations\":[{\"to\":[{\"email\":\"test@example.com\"}],\"subject\":\"Sending with SendGrid is Fun\"}],\"from\":{\"email\":\"test@example.com\"},\"content\":[{\"type\":\"text/plain\",\"value\": \"and easy to do anywhere, even with Java\"}]}");
      Response response = sg.api(request);
      System.out.println(response.getStatusCode());
      System.out.println(response.getBody());
      System.out.println(response.getHeaders());
    } catch (IOException ex) {
      throw ex;
    }
  }
}

General v3 Web API Usage

import com.sendgrid.*;
import java.io.IOException;

public class Example {
  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    SendGrid sg = new SendGrid(System.getenv("SENDGRID_API_KEY"));
    try {
      Request request = new Request();
      request.setMethod(Method.GET);
      request.setEndpoint("api_keys");
      Response response = sg.api(request);
      System.out.println(response.getStatusCode());
      System.out.println(response.getBody());
      System.out.println(response.getHeaders());
    } catch (IOException ex) {
      throw ex;
    }
  }
}
