simpleyql, a free Java library to ease YQL+OAuth development

Hello!

I am one of the developers of simpleyql, a library that simplifies the development of Java applications that need to use OAuth-authenticated YQL APIs.

It may help Java developers that got a bit unmotivated by the complexity of the oAuth core library (simpleyql is built upon it, but hides its complexity by being Yahoo-specific and doing some assumptions).

If you want to see it in action, check MemeThis (a Y! Meme add-on that uset this library), which is free software, just as simpleyql. An interesting aspect is that it's hosted on Google App Engine(*), showcasing how people can combine Google and Yahoo! services to build new functionality and make it available at zero cost!

* simpleyql was designed with GAE as an option in mind, but will work as well on standard web containers.

Regards,
Chester.
