Google YouTube (and other) API's - maven2 artifacts

Been playing with the google java API's for youtube as a part of the Sheffield virtual classroom project. I was shocked to find there weren't any maven artifacts for the jars. Here's the commands to take the distributed jars and cram them into your local maven2 repo.

Download the zip package from googlecode at http://code.google.com/p/gdata-java-client/downloads/list

then cd to the lib directory and run


mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=gdata -DartifactId=base -Dversion=1.0 -Dfile=gdata-base-1.0.jar -Dpackaging=jar -DgeneratePom=true

Yeah, I too was disappointed these are not in a public maven repo.

I'm hoping you can explain something. I don't understand Google's versions.

The download is something like version 1.39.1 which contains source and a bunch of jars.

However the jars have versions like 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0.

So what has the version 1.39.1? The source? What is this source?

If I want to work with the calendar API do i just need the jars and not the source?!? How do I get the latest jars if these just have versions 1.0, etc?

This versioning makes no sense. I wish they would have used standard maven versioning. Please explain.

There are needed jsr305.jar and google-collect-1.0-rc1.jar
