OAuth2 token with AbstractOAuth2ServiceProvider
AbstractOAuth2ServiceProvider has getApi() which only takes an access token. However, oauth2 implementations require both an access token and a refresh token. Furthermore, the refresh token should be used by the AbstractOAuth2ApiBinding or its RestTemplate somehow. Currently my Google+ authentication fails if I only use the access token. So, the questions:
- is it expected that spring-social oauth2 client support would work if refreshing tokens is required?
- is getApi(accessToken) sufficient for instantiating an api client that requires refresh token?
- how to get the whole refreshing thing to work.

Any handle on this? I've seen that there is no progress on the JIRA issue. How did you work around it?

Check the source of my Google+ client library. It's an ugly workaround, but works. http://code.google.com/p/google-plus-java-api/

Thanks, just finished implementing my first test of this. I do hope Spring Social will address this soon. This is way too complicated
