 Summary

  This sample illustrates of using  eBay Java SDK framework to make AddItem call and list a Chinese auction on eBay Sandbox.  For using this sample you must have:
   1. got your sandbox keys that include three IDs (DevID, AppID, and CertID) and an API Token.
   2. obtained and installed the eBay Java SDK package.

  Attached to this article is a zipped project implementing the AddItem code.

 Detailed Description

Creating a standalone eBay Project named eBayApiRequest, which consists the file structure as below.   
       1. Java Source files
             ${EBAY_JAVA_SDK_HOME}/eBayApiRequest/src/ebay/sdk/AppAddItem.java
             ${EBAY_JAVA_SDK_HOME}/eBayApiRequest/src/ebay/sdk/RequestHeaderParam.java
       2. Build, batch and properties files
             ${EBAY_JAVA_SDK_HOME}/eBayApiRequest/request_param.properties
             ${EBAY_JAVA_SDK_HOME}/eBayApiRequest/build.xml
             ${EBAY_JAVA_SDK_HOME}/eBayApiRequest/run.bat 
       3. Plug your own devid, appid, cert, and token into the request_param.properties file.

Here is the AppAddItem.java souce code.
