Sample Package Subscribe Client

The PackageSubscribeClient demo program extends the REST API:BaseClient class to subscribe to a package file (a zip file downloaded from the platform). With minor modifications, it can be used to subscribe to a package hosted on the platform.

package demo.rest;

import java.io.File;

import javax.ws.rs.core.MediaType;

import org.apache.wink.client.ClientResponse;
import org.apache.wink.client.ClientWebException;
import org.apache.wink.client.Resource;
import org.apache.wink.common.internal.utils.MediaTypeUtils;

/**
 * "Subscribe" to (install or update) a package contained in a zip file.
 * This program extends demo.rest.BaseClient.java
 * which in turn makes use of demo.rest.BaseUtil.java to handle
 * logging in, logging out, and message formatting.
 */

public class PackageSubscribeClient extends BaseClient
{
   
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        String packageUrl = baseUrl + "/package/operation/subscribe"
               + "?fileName=orders.zip";         // Subscribe from a file
        File f = new File("c:\\orders.zip");

        //Other options:
        //     + "?packageId=123123123";       // Subscribe from platform
        //     + "?packageId=123123123&version=1.2";  //  Specify version

        // Instantiate BaseClient.client and get sessionId
        PackageSubscribeClient subscribeClient = new PackageSubscribeClient();
        cookieString = subscribeClient.login();
        try
        {
           Resource resource = getResource(packageUrl);
           resource.header("Cookie", cookieString);

           ClientResponse response =
                resource.contentType(MediaTypeUtils.ZIP).accept(
                    MediaType.APPLICATION_XML).post(ClientResponse.class, f);
            String responseXml = response.getEntity(String.class);
            echoResponse(responseXml);
        }
        catch (ClientWebException webException)
        {
            echoResponse(webException);
        }
        catch (Exception e)
        {
           System.out.println(e.getMessage());
           e.printStackTrace();
        }
        finally
        {
            client.logout();
        }

}

Download a Package

Download a package as a zip file.

File:Lock-tiny.gif

Users that have the Manage Packages permission can use this resource. 
Method
POST
URI
https://na.longjump.com/networking/rest/package/operation/download/{package_id}?{query_parameters}
where:
  • package_id - Is the package record ID - the value at the top of the Package page.
Query Parameters
  • lastPublishedVersion
  • If TRUE, the package downloaded will be the last published version. (Default) If the package has never been published, it will be published first, so that it can be downloaded.
  • If FALSE, the package will be re-assembled/re-created, and this version will include all changes made to the components, from the last package publish date. (If any components of the package have been checked out, the request returns an Error.)
For more information, see: Specifying Query Parameters in REST APIs
Response

The response is of type multipart/mixed.

  • On success it will contain two parts which look something like this
-----------------------------103832778631715
     content-type: application/xml
 
     <platform>
        <message>
            <code>0</code>
            <description>Success</description>
        </message>
    </platform>
 
-----------------------------103832778631715
content-type: application/octet-stream
 
Encoded file part
-----------------------------103832778631715--
  • On failure it will contain just a single part which looks something like this
-----------------------------103832778631715
     content-type: application/xml
