Confluence - Java REST Client library

Hi everybody,
Recently I've been using Jira REST API through one of Atlassian libraries for java: com.atlassian.jira.jira-rest-client-api.jar - there are a lot of examples and quite good docs about how to use it. 
Not I want to do the same with Confluence and I've found some libraries like: com.atlassian.confluence.confluence-rest-client.jar but I can't find any documentation and examples of how to use it in java apps. 
Is this library quite similar in use to the jira's one? Can you give me some links to examples or documentation? 
Any help will be appreciated:)
Many thanks, Marcin

We have documentation on both the JAVA API and REST API for Confluence below:

Have a look there, and if you don't find what you need, please let us know exactly what you're trying to do.


I too am trying to update my cloud confluence pages by getting / posting to with a Java client. 

I am able to do the basics such as get my content in JSON format.

But I am expecting to see Java classes to facilitate JSON serialization and deserialization of the requests and responses. I see the Javadoc and the REST API but I don't see a reference to the maven repo that contains the relevant Java model files. Could you kindly post that URL?

I sincerely hope that you do not expect developers to build requests with JSONObjects and JSONArrays and parse the JSON responses with home grown code.

Hi Bruce,

I would recommend raising a new question so someone familiar with that topic can assist you.

If you're actively developing something for Confluence then I recommend the developer forum.

Thank you for your understanding!

I think this is what you need. Unfortunately can't find any class such as but for Confluence. Tell me if you find something, please.

I am also looking for similar Java client instead of writing home grown code. Can you please share the details around this
