We will be performing routine AdWords system maintenance from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. PDT on Saturday, July 29, 2006. While all AdWords advertisements will continue to run as normal, you may not be able to perform any API operations during this maintenance period.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

AdWords API Java Client Library updated

Wednesday, July 12, 2006

Yesterday we released version 0.4 of the AdWords API Java Client Library. There are very few code changes and it still supports AdWords API v4 (except a a fix to the AdWordsService interface which was lacking a few methods used for quota management).

There are many improvements in the documentation and samples.
The javadoc for the library has been updated to reflect the new architecture, and now we ship samples showing how to use all the services, and the most useful methods in the API.

In addition to that, we now have a list of client libraries and samples available on the AdWords API Open Source Projects Wiki Page.

REMINDER: Phasing-out KeywordService

Wednesday, July 05, 2006

As a follow-up to our September 30 and April 13 postings, we would like to remind everyone that we will remove KeywordService from our next version of the AdWords API (due out in a few weeks).

Therefore, any API applications still calling KeywordService should begin migrating to CriterionService as soon as possible.
