Code examples

You can find on our GitHub a self-executing package of code examples for the eSignature Java SDK, called a Launcher, that demonstrates common use cases. You can also download a version preconfigured for your DocuSign developer account from Quickstart. These examples can use either the Authorization Code Grant or JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication workflows.

OAuth implementations

For details regarding which type of OAuth grant will work best for your DocuSign integration, see Choose OAuth Type in the DocuSign Developer Center.

For security purposes, DocuSign recommends using the Authorization Code Grant flow.
