Four Ways to Get Started with OneSpan Sign
The four ways to use OneSpan Sign are using the provided UI, the Java SDK, the .NET SDK, and the REST API. Throughout the previous 8 weeks, I have created simple tutorial blogs showing step-by-step examples of how you can get started with each of these methods, in a series named "OneSpan Sign for New Users". This short blog will give a quick summary of each way to get started with OneSpan Sign and a link to the full blog text.
OneSpan Sign Web UI
This was the first entry in the series. In this blog, I cover signing up for a Sandbox account, creating a new package, adding signers and documents, placing signatures on the documents, and finally sending the document package to all signers.
OneSpan Sign Java SDK
This was the first blog in the series to step into code. This post covered downloading the Java SDK, downloading the Eclipse Java IDE, creating and configuring a Java project, and all of the code needed to create and send a document package from a simple Java class.
OneSpan Sign .NET SDK
The second of the SDKs was covered much like the first. This post shows how to download the .NET SDK and Microsoft Visual Studio, how to create and configure a C# project, and finally shows the code needed to create and send a document package.
OneSpan Sign REST API
The final section of the "OneSpan Sign for New Users" series was a slight change of pace. In this blog, I went one step further than the SDKs and used the REST API directly. I use C# in Microsoft Visual Studio, like in the .NET SDK blogs, so I jump right into the code. After showing the code in its entirety, I walk through the code, including how to create the HttpClient, set up the headers, set up the multipart form with the file data and JSON payload, and finally send the POST request.
