How to get a Dropbox Connection in Java without using SDK?

How to get a Dropbox Connection in Java without using SDK?

Explorer | Level 4

How can I get a Connection with dropbox without using the dropbox core sdk?

DbxClientV2 client = new DbxClientV2(config, ACCESS_TOKEN);

 I know how to do it that way. But I am not allowed to do it with an SDK and need to write my own client. How can I do that?

Is that a rhetorical question? Just use API documentation and implement whatever you want. 😉
Hope this helps.

That's correct, you can call the HTTPS endpoints from Java code without using the official Dropbox API v2 Java SDK, by using whatever HTTPS client you wish, such as okhttp, etc.
