Introduction to Volley: Part 1

This post is the first in a series about Google's Volley framework for Android. Volley is an open-source HTTP framework introduced at Google I/O 2013 that helps simplify web requests and responses by abstracting away many of the complexities of Android HTTP classes and background threads. Volley removes much of the boilerplate code required for efficient HTTP communication and lets developers focus on important app functionality instead. In addition, Volley adds support for common tasks such as JSON parsing, caching, image loading, all increasing developer productivity. Volley is also extensible and can be adapted to meet a variety of HTTP communication needs.

You can get Volley by cloning the project from Google (git clone­). The project currently is available in source form, so you have the options of adding the source code to your existing project, adding Volley as a library project, or building Volley as a jar and adding it directly to your own project.

In our next post, we'll show you the basic Volley framework components and how to use a JsonObjectRequest to make a simple HTTP Get request. Stay tuned!­
