In the last couple of tips, David described how to use Retrofit, an open-source library for making web service calls. David showed how to make calls both synchronously and asynchronously. Now he describes how to send a Parameter with a get request so you can filter the data that’s returned from a web service.
- [Instructor] In the last couple of tips…I've described how to use retrofit,…an open source library for making…web service calls.…I showed how to make calls…both synchronously and asynchronously.…Now, I'll describe how to send…a parameter with the get request…so that you can filter the data…that's returned from a web service.…Let's go back to the web service…that I'm using.…It's at this URL.…This particular web service is defined…so that you can pass in a parameter…named, category, and you'll filter…the data based on the category field.…
