This topic describes how to install SDKs for Java and provides sample code.

Background information

  • To use Resource Management SDK for Java, you must install both the core library of Alibaba Cloud SDK for Java (aliyun-java-sdk-core) and Resource Management SDK for Java (aliyun-java-sdk-resourcemanager).
  • Alibaba Cloud provides OpenAPI Developer Portal to simplify API usage. You can use OpenAPI Explorer to debug API operations and dynamically generate SDK sample code.
  • For more information about Resource Management API operations, see List of operations by function.


You can use one of the following methods to install the SDKs for Java. For more information, see Quick start.

  • Method 1: Add dependencies by using Maven (recommended)
    1. Use Maven to create a project.
      mvn archetype:generate -DgroupId=com.aliyun.resourcemanager.sample \
      -DartifactId=resourcemanager-sdk-sample \
      -Dpackage=com.aliyun.resourcemanager.sample \
    2. Add dependencies to the pom.xml file of the project.

      The following code provides an example of the dependencies on the aliyun-java-sdk packages. In this example, the SDK version is 2.0.7.

      Take note of the following information about the packages:
      • The aliyun-java-sdk packages have been added to the Maven repository. You do not need to edit the settings.xml file.
      • You can visit the Maven repository to obtain the latest version of the aliyun-java-sdk-core package.
  • Method 2: Download the JAR packages of the SDKs and add the packages to your project

    You can use this method to install the SDKs for Java regardless of whether you are using Eclipse or IntelliJ as the integrated development environment (IDE). You can download the JAR packages of the SDKs from the following links:


The following code provides an example on how to use Resource Management SDK for Java to call the CreateResourceAccount operation. You can use OpenAPI Developer Portal to debug other API operations and obtain their sample code.

import com.aliyuncs.DefaultAcsClient;
import com.aliyuncs.IAcsClient;
import com.aliyuncs.exceptions.ClientException;
import com.aliyuncs.exceptions.ServerException;
import com.aliyuncs.profile.DefaultProfile;
import java.util.*;
import com.aliyuncs.resourcemanager.model.v20200331.*;
public class CreateResourceAccount {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Construct an Alibaba Cloud client that is used to initiate requests.
        // When you construct the client, specify your AccessKey ID and AccessKey secret.
        DefaultProfile profile = DefaultProfile.getProfile("cn-shanghai", "<accessKeyId>", "<accessKeySecret>");
        IAcsClient client = new DefaultAcsClient(profile);
        // Construct the request object.
        CreateResourceAccountRequest request = new CreateResourceAccountRequest();
        // Specify request parameters. For more information about the parameters, see API Reference.
        // Initiate the request and obtain a response.
        try {
            CreateResourceAccountResponse response = client.getAcsResponse(request);
            System.out.println(new Gson().toJson(response));
        } catch(ServerException e) {
        } catch(ClientException e) {
            System.out.println("ErrCode:" + e.getErrCode());
            System.out.println("ErrMsg:" + e.getErrMsg());
            System.out.println("RequestId:" + e.getRequestId());
