To install with Maven, add a reference to the repository in pom.xml:

<repositories>
<repository>
<id>jitpack.io</id>
<url>https://jitpack.io</url>
</repository>
</repositories>

And add a reference to the dependency in pom.xml:

<dependencies>
<dependency>
<groupId>com.github.Cloudmersive</groupId>
<artifactId>Cloudmersive.APIClient.Java</artifactId>
<version>v3.54</version>
</dependency>
</dependencies>

To install with Gradle, add it in your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:

allprojects {
repositories {
...
maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
}
}

And add the dependency in build.gradle:

dependencies {
implementation 'com.github.Cloudmersive:Cloudmersive.APIClient.Java:v3.54'
}

Then, call the function:

// Import classes:
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiClient;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiException;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.Configuration;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.auth.*;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.DateTimeApi;

This will return the name of the holiday in both English and the local language, as well as the date on which it occurs, the holiday type, and whether the holiday is nationwide. You can retrieve the API Key from the Cloudmersive website at no cost and with no commitment. This will provide you with 800 monthly calls across our library of APIs.
