Cloud  API  (CAPI)  

•   Integrate  contacts,  calendars  &  pictures  from  variety  of  sources  e.g.        mobile  phones,  social  networks,  email  systems,  PCs/Macs  into  apps

HttpClient client = new HttpClient(); PostMethod post = new PostMethod("http://my.funambol.com/capi/login?action=login"); GetMethod get = new GetMethod("http://my.funambol.com/capi/contact?command=getdata"); try { //login in NameValuePair[] namevalue = new NameValuePair[]{ new NameValuePair("login", "username"), new NameValuePair("password", "password”)}; post.setRequestBody(namevalue); int statusCode = client.executeMethod(post); byte[] responseBody = post.getResponseBody(); System.out.println(" login:"+new String(responseBody));

//counting the contacts on server statusCode = client.executeMethod(get); String responseBodyStr = get.getResponseBodyAsString(); JSONObject obj = JSONObject.fromObject(responseBodyStr); System.out.println("Count " + obj.getString("count")+" Contacts."); } catch (HttpException e) { e.printStackTrace(); } catch (IOException e) { e.printStackTrace(); } finally { post.releaseConnection(); get.releaseConnection(); }
