Deprecation of the old Java library for AdWords and DFP APIs

As previously announced, the new Java client library for the AdWords and DFP APIs is now available. As of the v201302 release of the AdWords and DFP APIs, the old Java client libraries have been deprecated.

With the deprecation:
  • Support for new API releases will be added until the end of 2013.
  • New feature requests won’t be accepted.
We strongly encourage you to migrate to the new Java library, which has better coverage of important features such as OAuth 2.0 and Maven.

You can check out the migration guide that describes procedures for migration along with best practices. Also, we’ll discuss some of the advantages you will benefit from by migrating to the new Java library in upcoming blog posts. If you’d like to discuss the migration with us, you can come to our scheduled office hours for AdWords API and DFP API.

As always, please feel free to ask any questions regarding the client libraries on our forum for AdWords API and DFP API. You can also follow the Google Ads Developer page for all Ads-related updates.
