I am for the first time trying to create a APP that will upload a backup file into dropbox and although I managed to get it to work with the code example provided here https://www.dropbox.com/developers-v1/core/start/java the generated code only last for one run, next time it does not work anymore and I need to generate a new code.
How do I get my app (JAVA) to only request approval for my APP once and then be able to always run the app and upload my backup file?
It sounds like you're referring to the "authorization code", stored as `code` in the tutorial. The authorization code is temporary and can only be used once. The "access token", stored as `accessToken` in the tutorial, doesn't expire, so you can store and re-use that. When the user comes back, you can just retrieve that access token instead of sending them to the authorize URL again.
Stored accessToken in a file and it's all good now.
Many Thanks for your help
