Podio API on AndroidAnswered
I am trying to include the Java client library in a Android project. I am able to successfully add the Podio project as a dependency, and Eclipse correctly picks up all the imports and does not generate any errors. However, when I attempt to run the Maven build, it fails with an enormous error log listing the Podio project itself and all of its dependencies. If I remove the Podio dependency and the corresponding Java code, the project builds correctly.
Are there any other instructions beyond the few listed on the Java client library page that need to be completed in order for the library to run in an Android project?
The Java client has a lot of dependencies to make the work of building it as small as possible. However this makes it hard to use on Android, as it is fairly restricted in which libraries it can use. I think it should be possible to get to work on Android, but I haven't actually tried it.
Alternatively you can code a simple client yourself. You can look at our Java client for inspiration, but since we use very standard technologies (REST, JSON, OAuth2) it should be a relatively quick job.
