How to use auto-generated sdk file in android studio?

I am currently trying to use the the client
side SDKs(sample shoppingcartService SDK) generated by Backendless API Engine.
But I don’t know how to use it. I tried to import the zip file I downloaded as
a dependency to my Android project. But it seems not working correctly because
I can not use the function it defines. Here is the link from documentation, but
it does not provide enough instruction.

Thanks in advance

After searching on Google, When I tried to add this unzipped file into a new module as eclipse project, but after typing location of unzipped file, android studio showed"specify location of the gradle or android eclipse project ".

Am I on the right truck? or…

Hi Yifei,

Are you using the latest version on Android Studio?

Yes I think so

Please check it like here and post the version number you use


Can you open the downloaded unpacked zip as a new project in Android Studio?


I can import it as a new Eclipse project like this

Hello, you have to:

  1. Create a new project or use an existing one.
  2. Add the dependency to backnendless android sdk.
  3. Download zip file.
  4. Unzip it.
  5. Copy “com” folder
  6. Paste it to src folder in your project
  7. Use ShoppingCartService to invoke methods.

Also I have create ticket BKNDLSS-14430 to simplify this process
