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). Unique user-level and aggregate links can also be created to let users view complete, real-time traffic and referrer data, as well as location and metadata.
A lot of developers just naturally assume their applications will run on Intel x86 server, but following the announcement of a $1 billion investment in building out the ecosystem around Linux running on Power processors IBM is hoping to alter that perception.
APIs are now an integral part of any product offering. Developers have continuously pushed the envelope in terms of the features that they want from APIs and API companies have responded from time to time, paying attention to design, reducing the amount of response data and also using performance tuning tools for APIs. In the light of that, Google expanded a feature that it introduced a year back: partial responses and updates.

Your competitors publicly proclaim you as unbeatable. What's your secret, bit.ly?
