Edit: finally here it is an official training about "Volley library"

I need help for PATCH requests with volley, can anyone help?

Interesting library and great links!! Thanks @Abdrahmn_msi ^^

StringRequest postRequest = new StringRequest(Request.Method.POST, "PUT_YOUR_REST_API_URL_HERE",
            new Response.Listener<String>() {
                @Override
                public void onResponse(String response) {
                    try {
                        final JSONObject jsonObject = new JSONObject(response);
                        // Process your json here as required
                    } catch (JSONException e) {
                        // Handle json exception as needed
                    }
                }
            },
            new Response.ErrorListener() {
                @Override
                public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) {
                    String json = null;
                    NetworkResponse response = error.networkResponse;
                    if(response != null && response.data != null){
                        switch(response.statusCode) {
                            default:
                                String value = null;
                                try {
                                    // It is important to put UTF-8 to receive proper data else you will get byte[] parsing error.
                                    value = new String(response.data, "UTF-8");
                                } catch (UnsupportedEncodingException e) {
                                    e.printStackTrace();
                                }
                                json = trimMessage(value, "message");
                                // Use it for displaying error message to user 
                                break;
                        }
                    }
                    loginError(json);
                    progressDialog.dismiss();
                    error.printStackTrace();
                }  
                public String trimMessage(String json, String key){
                    String trimmedString = null;
                    try{
                        JSONObject obj = new JSONObject(json);
                        trimmedString = obj.getString(key);
                    } catch(JSONException e){
                        e.printStackTrace();
                        return null;
                    }
                    return trimmedString;
                }
            }
    ) {
        @Override
        protected Map<String, String> getParams() {
            Map<String, String> params = new HashMap<>();
            params.put("abc", "pass abc");
            params.put("xyz", "pass xyz");
            // Pass more params as needed in your rest API
    // Example you may want to pass user input from EditText as a parameter
    // editText.getText().toString().trim()
            return params;
        }  
        @Override
        public String getBodyContentType() {
            // This is where you specify the content type
            return "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8";
        }
    };

    // This adds the request to the request queue
    MySingleton.getInstance(YourActivity.this)
.addToRequestQueue(postRequest);
public class MySingleton {
    private static MySingleton mInstance;
    private RequestQueue mRequestQueue;
    private static Context mCtx;  
    private MySingleton(Context context) {
        mCtx = context;
        mRequestQueue = getRequestQueue();
    }

    public static synchronized MySingleton getInstance(Context context) {
        if (mInstance == null) {
            mInstance = new MySingleton(context);
        }
        return mInstance;
    }

    public RequestQueue getRequestQueue() {
        if (mRequestQueue == null) {
            // getApplicationContext() is key, it keeps you from leaking the
            // Activity or BroadcastReceiver if someone passes one in.
            mRequestQueue = Volley.newRequestQueue(mCtx.getApplicationContext());
        }
        return mRequestQueue;
    }

    public <T> void addToRequestQueue(Request<T> req) {
        getRequestQueue().add(req);
    }
}

This is an illustration for making a POST request using Volley. StringRequest is used to get response in the form of String. Assuming your rest API returns a JSON. The JSON response from your API is received as String here, which you can covert again to JSON and process it further. Added comments in code.

How do you use the Android Volley API?


Unfortunately there is no documentation for a Volley library like JavaDocs until now. Only repo on github and several tutorials across the Internet. So the only good docs is source code :) . When I played with Volley I read this tutorial.

How do you use the Android Volley API?


// Instantiate the RequestQueue.
RequestQueue queue = Volley.newRequestQueue(this);
String url ="http://www.google.com";

// Request a string response from the provided URL.
StringRequest stringRequest = new StringRequest(Request.Method.GET, url,
            new Response.Listener<String>() {
    @Override
    public void onResponse(String response) {
        // process your response here

    }
}, new Response.ErrorListener() {
    @Override
    public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) {
        //perform operation here after getting error
    }            
});
// Add the request to the RequestQueue.
queue.add(stringRequest);
