Requirements

Building the API client library requires:

  1. Java 1.7+
  2. Maven

Prerequisites

To use GroupDocs.Annotation Cloud SDK for Java you need to register an account with GroupDocs Cloud and lookup/create Client ID and Client Secret at Cloud Dashboard. There is free quota available. For more details, see GroupDocs Cloud Pricing.

Install GroupDocs.Annotation-Cloud from Maven

Add GroupDocs Cloud repository to your application pom.xml

<repository>
    <id>repository.groupdocs.cloud</id>
    <name>repository.groupdocs.cloud</name>
    <url>https://repository.groupdocs.cloud/repo/</url>
</repository>

Install from source

To install the API client library to your local Maven repository, simply execute:

mvn clean install

To deploy it to a remote Maven repository instead, configure the settings of the repository and execute:

mvn clean deploy

Refer to the OSSRH Guide for more information.

Maven users

Add this dependency to your project’s POM:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.groupdocs</groupId>
    <artifactId>groupdocs-annotation-cloud</artifactId>
    <version>22.2</version>
    <type>pom</type>
</dependency>

Others

At first generate the JAR by executing:

mvn clean package

Then manually install the following JARs:

  • target/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-22.2.jar
  • target/lib/*.jar

Get Started

Please follow the Quick Start instructions.

Sample Java Code to Add a Point Annotation

// For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation-cloud/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-java-samples
String MyAppKey = ""; // Get AppKey and AppSID from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud
String MyAppSid = ""; // Get AppKey and AppSID from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud
  
Configuration configuration = new Configuration(MyAppSid, MyAppKey);
  
AnnotateApi apiInstance = new AnnotateApi(configuration);
 
// Create annotation/s.
AnnotationInfo[] annotations = new AnnotationInfo[1];
annotations[0] = new AnnotationInfo();
 
Point pt = new Point();
pt.setX(1.0);
pt.setY(1.0);
annotations[0].setAnnotationPosition(pt);
 
Rectangle r = new Rectangle();
r.setX(100.0);
r.setY(100.0);
r.setWidth(200.0);
r.setHeight(100.0);
 
annotations[0].setBox(r);
annotations[0].setPageNumber(0);
annotations[0].setType(TypeEnum.POINT);
annotations[0].setText("This is point annotation");
annotations[0].setCreatorName("Anonym A.");
 
// Create request object.
FileInfo fileInfo = new FileInfo();
fileInfo.setFilePath("Annotationdocs\\one-page.docx");
 
AnnotateOptions options = new AnnotateOptions();
options.setFileInfo(fileInfo);
options.setAnnotations(Arrays.asList(annotations));
options.setOutputPath("Output/one-page-annotated.docx");
 
AnnotateRequest request = new AnnotateRequest(options);
 
// Executing api method.
AnnotationApiLink result = apiInstance.annotate(request);
 
System.out.println("AddPointAnnotation: Point Annotation added: " + result.getTitle());

Authorization & Authentication

Authentication schemes defined for the API is as follows:
