Just want people to know that they can grab the latest and greatest version (2.0.0) of the IOSLinkedInAPI

It is available as a cocoapod as well.


  • Updated to use AFNetworking 2.x

    thanks for your efforts on IOSLinkedInAPI!
    i used the sample in IOSLinkedInAPI for sending message to linkedin friends. i follow instructions written by linkedin,
    but it stuck when POST JSON request, here’s my code snippet:

    // set the Content-Type header
    self.client.responseSerializer = [AFJSONResponseSerializer serializer];
    self.client.requestSerializer = [AFJSONRequestSerializer serializer];
    [self.client.requestSerializer setValue:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"application/json"] forHTTPHeaderField:@”Content-Type”];
    [self.client.requestSerializer setValue:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"json"] forHTTPHeaderField:@”x-li-format”];

    [self.client POST:[NSString stringWithFormat:@""] parameters:tempDict success:^(AFHTTPRequestOperation *operation, NSDictionary *result) {

    NSLog(@”success send message, with response: %@”, result);

    } failure:^(AFHTTPRequestOperation *operation, NSError *error) {
    NSLog(@”failed to send message: %@”, error);

    And here is error from AFNetworking:

    failed to send message: Error Domain=AFNetworkingErrorDomain Code=-1011 “Request failed: unauthorized (401)” UserInfo=0×8c99b00 {NSErrorFailingURLKey=, NSLocalizedDescription=Request failed: unauthorized (401), NSUnderlyingError=0×8b739a0 “Request failed: unacceptable content-type: text/xml”, AFNetworkingOperationFailingURLResponseErrorKey= { URL: } { status code: 401, headers {
    Connection = “keep-alive”;
    “Content-Encoding” = gzip;
    “Content-Type” = “text/xml;charset=UTF-8″;
    Date = “Tue, 04 Mar 2014 13:20:38 GMT”;
    Server = “Apache-Coyote/1.1″;
    “Transfer-Encoding” = Identity;
    Vary = “*”;
    “Www-Authenticate” = “OAuth realm=\”\”";
    “X-LI-UUID” = “8IGQTVpEWBMwa8ZXqisAAA==”;
    “X-Li-Fabric” = “PROD-ELA4″;
    “X-Li-Pop” = “PROD-ELA4″;
    “x-li-format” = xml;
    “x-li-request-id” = L7AJ5N2C8F;
    } }}

    in my code snippet, i explicitly set Content-Type header as “application/json”, however, the error output show that: Request failed with : unacceptable content-type: text/xml”,

    have u any ideas for this issue?
