Hi everyone,

I am trying to get the AuthSubSessionToken in my servlet, I was successful in getting the token by sending this request

but this is a single-use AuthSub token.

I want to exchange this token to get the AuthSub session token for multiple requests.
Can anyone tel me how can i achieve that and if anyone could paste some sample code on how to go about it, I would really appreciate it..

Any help is appreciated

Thanks in advance

According to Google's documentation, you need to get a request token first. Then you can make another request to upgrade it to a session token.
