Google HTTP Client Library for Java

Description

Written by Google, the Google HTTP Client Library for Java is a flexible, efficient, and powerful Java library for accessing any resource on the web via HTTP. The library has the following features:

  • Pluggable HTTP transport abstraction that allows you to use any low-level library such as java.net.HttpURLConnection, Apache HTTP Client, or URL Fetch on Google App Engine.
  • Efficient JSON and XML data models for parsing and serialization of HTTP response and request content. The JSON and XML libraries are also fully pluggable, and they include support for Jackson and Android's GSON libraries for JSON.

The library supports the following Java environments:

  • Java 6 (or higher)
  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) (or higher)
  • GoogleAppEngine Google App Engine

The following related projects are built on the Google HTTP Client Library for Java:

This is an open-source library, and contributions are welcome.

Notice: Ending Java 6 Support

Please note: since Java 6 extended support is being ended this December by Oracle, we will begin ending Java 6 support in early 2019, with release 1.28.0 as a tentative goal. Users may stay still use these libraries in Java 6 projects for some time, but going forward we will not ensure that these libraries work in such an environment. After 1.28.0, our supported versions will include Java 7 and onward.

For Android users, we will continue our 4.0 support.

For questions or concerns, please file an issue in the GitHub repository.
