I have a Java link working - it is pretty basic in the features. For example you cannot name a photo or provide a description.

Stay away. Stay far away.

I just got off the phone with customer service regarding some issues with the documentation and/or code behind this api. Shutterfly customer service doesn't know what it is. After three phone calls, being bounced between India and California, and a lot of discussion, I have come to understand there is nobody at Shutterfly who can support this api.

I never was able to completely get it to work, and the documentation is wrong in a number of areas, some of which you can figure out from trial and error, some of which you can't.
