I want to get contact data from Google contacts. I have looked at the google documentation, it says the GDATA libraries are now out of date and deprecated but when I start following the links for the API client they lead back to the GDATA site. I've seen a couple of questions on this site about this but they all seem to refer to the GDATA as well. Is it deprecated? In which case what has replaced it? Or is it still OK to use?

The way I read https://developers.google.com/gdata/ is that it is still the current API to use for some data (which seems to include Contacts).

Thanks Tim,

Good to know I'm using the right thing. I'm having trouble making it work. Is there a simple guide anywhere? I use NetBeans as my environment but I can't seem to find all the JAR files it wants, it currently wants a ContactsService library that I can't seem to find anywhere. Have I missed a library?
