Are you talking about get the get a users location part of foursquares api?

developer.foursquare.com/venues/


If so you are looking for the venues section of the api.

If you are asking how to use Curl or JSON your probably better off hiring someone to write your script

yes i am looking for this api

but this thng is totally new for me . what i understood from foursquare is that i will just invoke location api as we do to invoke any http url using httpconnection class which returns xml but if this is what i hv to do then how user will search location . searching location will depend on user input?


can you tell me which api wll be used for facebook integration?

I use this code for searching location but i dont know how to get & show result

public void searchVenues(String ll) throws FoursquareApiException {
// First we need a initialize FoursquareApi.
FoursquareApi foursquareApi = new FoursquareApi("Client ID", "Client Secret", "Callback URL");
String s= foursquareApi.usersFriends(userId);
// After client has been initialized we can make queries.
Result<VenuesSearchResult> result = foursquareApi.venuesSearch(ll, null, null, null, null, null, null, null, null, null, null);

if (result.getMeta().getCode() == 200) {
// if query was ok we can finally we do something with the data
for (CompactVenue venue : result.getResult().getVenues()) {
// TODO: Do something we the data
System.out.println(venue.getName());

}
} else {
// TODO: Proper error handling
System.out.println("Error occured: ");
System.out.println(" code: " + result.getMeta().getCode());
System.out.println(" type: " + result.getMeta().getErrorType());
System.out.println(" detail: " + result.getMeta().getErrorDetail());
}
}

Now JSON is more my flavor, my knowledge in Java is limited. I actually prefer PHP and Curl, REST. I use many API's Google, Bing, Yahoo, Amazon, CJ, Linkshare and to many others to list unfortunately foursquare is not one of them. As for facebook integration

Are you looking for developer or consultant?

I am starting to think this conversation isn't really suitable for this forum, and this thread is starting to go off topic. But it is possible to discuss further in a different place, from a developer and or consultant standpoint.
