Lionbridge Content SDK for Java

This library is a client SDK which provides a Service wrapper and Object-Oriented mechanism for communicating with the Lionbridge onDemand API Connector web service.

End-User Documentation

To use the Lionbridge Content SDK in your own Java application, please see the End-User Documentation



On a Mac you can install the prerequisites using Homebrew:

$ brew install git
$ brew install maven
$ brew install git-flow-avh
$ brew cask install java

Getting Started

To check out and run the tests for the project, do the following:

$ git clone
$ cd liox-content-sdk-java
$ export LIOX_API_ACCESS_KEY_ID=<your-sandbox-api-key>
$ export LIOX_API_SECRET_KEY=<your-sandbox-api-secret>
$ mvn

Git Flow

We use GitFlow for development of the JSDK, with the default configuration.

To get started you'll want to initialize GitFlow and make sure you have the latest develop branch.

$ git flow init --defaults --force
$ git co develop
$ git pull origin develop


All functionality and bug fixes should be worked on as features:

$ git flow feature start foo
# writes a test
# make the test pass
# refactor your code
# ensure tests still pass
$ git add <your-changes>
$ git commit -m "your descriptive commit message"
$ git push origin head
# make sure code passes on CI

Once you've ensured that your code passes on CI it's time to finish your feature and push up the merged develop branch.

$ git flow feature finish foo
$ git flow feature publish foo
$ git co develop
$ git push origin develop

You're now ready to work on your next feature or create a release!


To create a release of the Lionbridge Content SDK, do the following:

$ git flow release start X.Y.Z
$ mvn versions:set -DnewVersion=X.Y.Z
$ rm pom.xml.versionsBackup
$ git add pom.xml
$ git commit -m "Releasing X.Y.Z"
$ git flow release publish X.Y.Z
$ git flow finish X.Y.Z



Whenever a develop branch build passes on CI, a snapshot is automatically deployed to

Snapshots for the onDemand client can be found at


To deploy a release version of the onDemand Client to Maven Central requires a few steps:

Sonatype Account


$ brew install gpg
$ gpg --gen-key
# Key Type: 1 - RSA and RSA (default)
# Key Size: 2048
# Key Duration: 1y
# Enter your real name
# Enter your email address
# No Comment
# Enter a passphrase
# Grab the ID for your public key after the `2048R/`
$ gpg --keyserver hkp:// --send-keys YOUR_PUBLIC_ID

Maven Settings

Now you need to add your Sonatype login and GPG information to your Maven settings file (~/.m2/settings.xml):


Package, Sign and Deploy

Check out master and deploy using the release profile.

$ git co master
$ mvn deploy -P release

Publish to Maven Central

Now it's time to inspect the staged release and push it to Maven Central
