how to download multiple files using java sdk

how to download multiple files using java sdk

Hi ,

I have created single user app. I am trying to download multpile files from dropbox.
So Do I have to download file by file? Or can I batch all the files and download as a zip?.

I was able to download whole folder as a zip. But I want only specific files inside that folder and download them at once using java sdk.. is it possible?.

 

Thanks,

Mani

It's not possible to download multiple specific files at once like this, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. You can either download them file by file, or download entire folders as zips, as you mentioned.

@ambs To download an entire folder as a zip, you can use downloadZip. That works the same way as the other download methods, such as the download example here.
