Really nice work! I downloaded the source and wanted to try to modify it a little bit but i guess you forgot to include some important source files:

This is the error i get when compiling:
import Base.GroovesharkAudioStream;
import Base.GroovesharkClient;
import Base.Utilities;
import Functions.SearchArtist;

package Base does not exit (there are no files except the main class anyway)

I am sorry to say that I will not give out the source of my api, but you may use the classes inside my jar of the downloader, where the classes are available ;)

Can you provide any kind of documentation about the classes in the class files?

I'm building a new CLI, but gathering information about the API is only possible via reflection.
Furthermore, a short guide how to use these methods would be cool. For example, I don't really know what the point in exporting the client to xml is. I suspect, that you can preserve the session (and don't have to fully reconnect), but the first search takes a long time anyway. I don't know if I'm using this mechanism wrong or if this is normal...

You will just need to check the Downloader source to get the information you need ;)
I am exporting the client so if something get changed there, anybody may fix it himself and also I am using this xml on several Grooveshark(tm) Apps. I am saving the session, just check the downloader source :)
