Java Question

convert curl call into java urlconnection call

I have curl command:

curl -i -u guest:guest -H "content-type:application/json"
-XPUT \ http://localhost:15672/api/traces/%2f/my-trace \
-d'{"format":"text","pattern":"#"}'


And I want to create HTTP Request in Java API which will do the same thing. This curl command can be found in this README. It is used to start recording log on RabbitMQ. Response is not important.

For now I created something like this (I've deleted less important lines i.e. with catching exception etc.), but unfortunately it doesn't work:

url = new URL("http://localhost:15672/api/traces/%2f/my-trace");
uc = url.openConnection();

uc.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/json");
uc.setRequestProperty("format","json");
uc.setRequestProperty("pattern","#")
String userpass = "guest:guest";
String basicAuth = "Basic " + javax.xml.bind.DatatypeConverter.printBase64Binary(userpass.getBytes());
uc.setRequestProperty ("Authorization", basicAuth);

Answer Source

This is final solution:

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
import java.net.HttpURLConnection;
import java.net.URL;
import java.net.Proxy;
import java.net.InetSocketAddress;
import java.io.OutputStreamWriter;

public class Curl {

  public static void main(String[] args) {

    try {

    String url = "http://127.0.0.1:15672/api/traces/%2f/trololo";

    URL obj = new URL(url);
    HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) obj.openConnection();

    conn.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/json");
    conn.setDoOutput(true);

    conn.setRequestMethod("PUT");

    String userpass = "user" + ":" + "pass";
    String basicAuth = "Basic " + javax.xml.bind.DatatypeConverter.printBase64Binary(userpass.getBytes("UTF-8"));
    conn.setRequestProperty ("Authorization", basicAuth);

    String data =  "{\"format\":\"json\",\"pattern\":\"#\"}";
    OutputStreamWriter out = new OutputStreamWriter(conn.getOutputStream());
    out.write(data);
    out.close();

    new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream());   

    } catch (Exception e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
    }

  }

}
