How to Integrate the Device Data Collector into Android Applications using the Library JAR

Provide native support for your solution by integrating the Device Data Collector Android SDK into your Android application. This allows you to use our services without having to create API calls.

Integrating Android Library JAR

  1. Download the latest SDK from GitHub, and then extract the contents.

  2. In Android Studio, copy the JAR file into the libs folder “Project Path”\app\libs of your application.

  3. In the Project viewer, right-click the JAR file, and then select Add as library.

  4. In the Gradle file for your app, add the following dependencies:

        dependencies {
              implementation ''
              implementation ''           
              implementation group: '', name: 'volley', version: '1.2.1'
              implementation 'org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7:1.3.72'
              implementation ""


    The Kotlin library is only necessary if your application is written in Java. If your application uses Support libraries, then it must be migrated to Android X libraries. Refer to Migrate for Android X for steps on migrating to Android X libraries.

    If you get an error like "unable to resolve dependency for compilepath: :app@debug/compileclasspath: Could not resolve," check that the source and target compatibility are set by adding the following lines of code in your application’s build.gradle:

    android {
        // Configure only for each module that uses Java 8
        // language features (either in its source code or
        // through dependencies).
        compileOptions {
            sourceCompatibility = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
            targetCompatibility = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        // For Kotlin projects
        kotlinOptions {
            jvmTarget = "1.8"
  5. Once you have integrated the Library JAR, proceed to step two to invoke the Device Data Collector.

    For Native Android invocation, refer to How to Invoke the Device Data Collector into Mobile Apps using the Native Android SDK.

    For Android Kotlin, refer to How to Invoke the Device Data Collector into Mobile Apps using the Android Kotlin SDK.
