oauth2-essentials

An OAuth2 client implementation based on http-client-essentials-suite.

Rationale

OAuth2 is an authentication frameworks that's standardized in RFC 6749. There are a couple of Java implementations for OAuth2 clients available, but most of them either depend on a specific platform (e.g. Android), pull in large dependencies (usually a specific HTTP client implementation) or are incomplete. This library aims to provide a complete, platform independent Java implementation of RFC 6749 which can be used with any HTTP client implementation. The later is achieved by using the http-client-essentials abstraction framework for HTTP clients.

Supported Grants

Examples

Initialize the client

Before doing any request you need to initialize the client to provide endpoints and client credentials. In general it will look like this:

// Create HttpRequestExecutor to execute HTTP requests
// Any other HttpRequestExecutor implementaion will do
HttpRequestExecutor executor = new HttpUrlConnectionExecutor();

// Create OAuth2 provider
OAuth2AuthorizationProvider provider = new BasicOAuth2AuthorizationProvider(
    URI.create("http://example.com/auth"),
    URI.create("http://example.com/token"),
    new Duration(1,0,3600) /* default expiration time in case the server doesn't return any */);

// Create OAuth2 client credentials
OAuth2ClientCredentials credentials = new BasicOAuth2ClientCredentials(
    "client-id", "client-password");

// Create OAuth2 client
OAuth2Client client = new BasicOAuth2Client(
    provider,
    credentials,
    new LazyUri(new Precoded("http://localhost")) /* Redirect URL */);

Authorization Code Grant

// Start an interactive Authorization Code Grant
OAuth2InteractiveGrant grant = new AuthorizationCodeGrant(
    client, new BasicScope("scope"));

// Get the authorization URL and open it in a WebView
URI authorizationUrl = grant.authorizationUrl();

// Open the URL in a WebView and wait for the redirect to the redirect URL
// After the redirect, feed the URL to the grant to retrieve the access token
OAuth2AccessToken token = grant.withRedirect(redirectUrl).accessToken(executor);

Implicit Grant

// Start an interactive Implicit Grant
OAuth2InteractiveGrant grant = new ImplicitGrant(client, new BasicScope("scope"));

// Get the authorization URL and open it in a WebView
URI authorizationUrl = grant.authorizationUrl();

// Open the URL in a WebView and wait for the redirect to the redirect URL
// After the redirect, feed it to the grant to retrieve the access token
OAuth2AccessToken token = grant.withRedirect(redirectUrl).accessToken(executor);

Resource Owner Password Credentials Grant

// Request access token using a Resource Owner Password Grant
OAuth2AccessToken token = new ResourceOwnerPasswordGrant(
    client, new BasicScope("scope"), "UserName", "UserSecret").accessToken(executor);

Client Credentials Grant

// Request access token using a Client Credentials Grant
OAuth2AccessToken token = new ClientCredentialsGrant(client, new BasicScope("scope")).accessToken(executor);

Refresh Token Grant

// Request new access token, providing the previous one
OAuth2AccessToken token = new TokenRefreshGrant(client, oldToken).accessToken(executor);

Authenticate a request

After receiving the access token you usually want to use it to authenticate connections. In general this depends on the http framework in use.

Using http-client-essentials

To authenticate a request using http-client-essentials just use a BearerAuthenticatedRequest like so

// 'request' is a HttpRequest instance that's to be authenticated
result = executor.execute(url, new BearerAuthenticatedRequest(request, token));

Using another http client or a non-http protocol

When not using http-client-essentials you can generate and add the Authorization header yourself.

// build the value of the Authorization header
String authorization = String.format("Bearer %s", token.accessToken());

// add the header to your request
// For HttpUrlConnection this looks like:
myConnection.setRequestProperty("Authorization", authorization);

Choice of HTTP client

This library doesn't depend on any specific HTTP client implementation. Instead it builds upon http-client-essentials-suite to allow any 3rd party HTTP client to be used.

Download

Get the latest version via Maven

Or add it to your build.gradle:

dependencies {
    // oauth2-essentials
    compile 'org.dmfs:oauth2-essentials:0.8'
    // optional to use httpurlconnection-executor, any other HttpRequestExecutor
    // implementation will do
    compile 'org.dmfs:httpurlconnection-executor:0.13'
}
