    Hi Ali,
    Thanks for writing such a good tutorial. This helped me a lot.
    Could you please add server side code as well & its corresponding calls in android to avoid mocked server ?
    There are many options available, I am not sure which one to use.
    Thanks

      Hi,
      Thanks for your reading and interest.
      Unfortunately, writing the server code is beyond the scope of this article. However, writing the server part and its corresponding android code is as simple as writing a RESTFUL webservice.
      Regards,
      Ali

      Thank you.
      They should be implemented in a class extending AbstractInterfaceImplementation.

    hi there, this is an awesome account manager library. i have successfully made a REST service and make calls to my server using Retrofit2 in a class extending AbstractInterfaceImplementation.
    when i call RegisterResult registerInServer my app force closes with this error.

    Java.lang.RuntimeException: User registration is not successful in authenticator due to the following error:/nnull
    at com.eduscence.app.accountauthenticator.activity.RegistrationActivity$RegisterAsync.(RegistrationActivity.java:100)

      Thanks for your interest.
      Have you checked the input params? If so, I guess the problem maybe because of inappropriate response (as needrd in RegisterResult) from the server to your registerInServer call. It would be good to check the example bundled with the library to see whether you are returning the correct format from the server.

      Hi,
      Sorry for late reply.
      No, it is not possible to login to an app with multiple Google accounts at the same time on one device.
