Java API to the json services

isbndb is a nice resource for book / author metadata. This module gives easy to use methods for accessing the json api of this website.


  • Java 8
  • maven
  • git
  • internet connection
  • isbndb api key (create an account and then a key)
  • good cheer :-)


Just add this to your maven project:



  • clone this project
  • maven build this project
  • add the dependency to your project
  • start using the Isbndb service

Good to know

By placing a file called on the classpath containing a property called api.key with a valid Api key it will be picked up automatically when the Isbndb service is instantiated.



You can of course override this by providing your own key programmatically.
