This Java client for Bitly is a small and easy to implement Java code library for interacting with Bit.ly, the URL shortening service. Though not directly supported by Bit.ly, the library is licensed under Apache 2.0, and endorsed for use on the Bit.ly developer site. Currently in version 0.7.1, this client supports OAuth, as API key authentication has been deprecated. The Bit.ly API allows developers to implement programmatic shortening, sharing, and tracking of links (URLs).
