How to resend request with android volley when not authorized

In my android application I have to do some http request using android volley. If my request succeed everything's ok, the problem arise when I get an error and this error has <strong>status code 401</strong>. In this case I want to make some stuff and repeat the same request, same url and same parameters. Is there an official way to do that? If not, how can I get my params from error?

StringRequest req = new StringRequest(method, URL, new Response.Listener<String>() { @Override public void onResponse(String response){ //VolleyLog.v("Response:%n %s", response); } }, new Response.ErrorListener() { @Override public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) { NetworkResponse response = error.networkResponse; if(response.statusCode == 401){ //make some stuff... //here i want to resend my request } } }) { @Override public Map<String, String> getHeaders() throws AuthFailureError { //get headers } @Override public Map<String, String> getParams() throws AuthFailureError { //get params } }; // add the request object to the queue to be executed ApplicationController.getInstance().addToRequestQueue(req);

Any help would be appreciated.


You can create the RetryPolicy to change default retry behavior, only specify timeout milliseconds, retry count arguments :

public class YourRequest extends StringRequest { public YourRequest(String url, Response.Listener<String> listener, Response.ErrorListener errorListener) { super(url, listener, errorListener); setRetryPolicy(new DefaultRetryPolicy(DefaultRetryPolicy.DEFAULT_TIMEOUT_MS, DefaultRetryPolicy.DEFAULT_MAX_RETRIES, DefaultRetryPolicy.DEFAULT_BACKOFF_MULT)); } }

the another way is estimate the VolleyError, re-execute the same request again when if was TimeoutError instance :

public static void executeRequest() { RequestQueue.add(new YourRequest("http://your.url.com/", new Response.Listener<String>() { @Override public void onResponse(String response) { } }, new Response.ErrorListener() { @Override public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) { if (error instanceof TimeoutError) { // note : may cause recursive invoke if always timeout. executeRequest(); } } })); }

Hope this will help you


After modifying the request add the request in requestQueue. Do it in ErrorListener.
