oAuth2 with Android (Part 2)

This is the fourth post in the series over oAuth with Symfony2, iOS and Android. All posts in this serie can be found here.
With this post we are continuing to work on the Android app, and start adding the needed oAuth libraries and adding network functionality.

All code from this post can be found here at Github. Because wordpress doesn’t seem to work that well with the included code in this blog, I suggest to use the code from the repository. I created a tag in the repo for the part that was at the end of this second part.

I assume within this post that you are at the same stage with your code as we ended in part 1.

To handle all oAuth related requests we are going to use a library that does all the hard work for us. This library can be found on Github.

Lets start with adding this library to our app. Because I am using Android Studio, dependencies and things like that are not handled by maven, but with Gradle. You should edit the build.gradle which is located in the android directory, not in the root!
Add in the dependencies section the next line:

compile 'com.wu-man:android-oauth-client:0.0.3'

oAuth2 with Android (Part 1)

This is the third post in the series over oAuth with Symfony2, iOS and Android. All posts in this serie can be found here. While the previous post about symfony2 was one large post, I am going to try splitting this in a few posts.

With android, there are several possibilities to do the actual development. While Eclipse is (Still) the preferred IDE, I actually like Android Studio more (And I am pretty sure Android Studio will soon fully replace Eclipse with their ADT).
The only disadvantage sometimes are the many releases of Android Studio, with sometimes features that break stuff in your project. The current version from Android Studio that I will be using for this project is 0.5.8, with tools version 22.6.
Testing the app will be done on a Nexus 7 (First version) with Android 4.4. I won’t be using the emulator.

oAuth2 with symfony2

This is the second post in the series over oAuth with Symfony2, iOS and Android. All posts in this serie can be found here.

Creating a simple website with Symfony2 is actually very simple. Symfony2 is a popular framework, with a lot of available libraries/bundles for all kind of things.
Most of these bundles are pretty good documented, and due to that it is pretty easy to add a new functionality.

For this website I am going to use the next libraries, besides symfony2 itself:
