How to do a simple Google Cloud Trace request in Java

I am trying to perform a simple push traces operation to my Google Cloud Trace project and I simply can't seem to send data across.

Here is my build.gradle file:

apply plugin: 'java'

repositories {
mavenCentral()
}

dependencies {
compile 'com.google.oauth-client:google-oauth-client-java6:1.20.0'
compile 'com.google.apis:google-api-services-cloudtrace:v1-rev6-1.22.0'
}

jar {
from configurations.compile.collect { it.isDirectory() ? it : zipTree(it) }
}


And the following Java code with dummy info for the project ID and my secrets file:

package test;

import com.google.api.client.googleapis.auth.oauth2.GoogleCredential;
import com.google.api.client.googleapis.javanet.GoogleNetHttpTransport;
import com.google.api.client.http.HttpTransport;
import com.google.api.client.json.JsonFactory;
import com.google.api.client.json.jackson2.JacksonFactory;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.CloudTrace;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.CloudTraceScopes;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.model.Trace;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.model.TraceSpan;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.model.Traces;

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.security.GeneralSecurityException;
import java.time.Instant;
import java.util.Collections;

public class Test {

public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException, GeneralSecurityException {
HttpTransport httpTransport = GoogleNetHttpTransport.newTrustedTransport();
JsonFactory jsonFactory = JacksonFactory.getDefaultInstance();

GoogleCredential cred = GoogleCredential
.fromStream(
new FileInputStream("/path/to/secrets.json"),
httpTransport,
jsonFactory)
.createScoped(Collections.singletonList(CloudTraceScopes.TRACE_APPEND));

CloudTrace gceTrace = new CloudTrace.Builder(httpTransport, jsonFactory, cred)
.setApplicationName("Google Cloud Trace test app")
.build();

TraceSpan span1 = new TraceSpan();
span1.setName("test");
span1.setStartTime(Long.toString(Instant.now().toEpochMilli()*1000000)+"Z");
Trace trace = new Trace();
trace.setSpans(Collections.singletonList(span1));
Traces traces = new Traces();
traces.setTraces(Collections.singletonList(trace));
gceTrace.projects().patchTraces("myprojectid", traces).execute();
}

}


I currently get the following error that contains no helpful indication except something seems to be wrong with my startTime value:

Exception in thread "main" com.google.api.client.googleapis.json.GoogleJsonResponseException: 400 Bad Request

"code" : 400,

} ],

at test.Test.main(Test.java:44)


I have tried to replace the startTime with the following value:

span1.setStartTime("2016-08-04T01:00:00Z");


which gives me:

Exception in thread "main" com.google.api.client.googleapis.json.GoogleJsonResponseException: 400 Bad Request
{
"code" : 400,
"errors" : [ {
"domain" : "global",

at com.google.api.client.googleapis.services.AbstractGoogleClientRequest.execute(AbstractGoogleClientRequest.java:469)
at test.Test.main(Test.java:44)


I also tried adding a endTime with:

span1.setEndTime("2016-08-04T01:00:01Z");


which also gives me the same error.

I'm pretty much at a lost at what needs to be done as I cannot find a single working Java example for this.
Thank you in advance for any pointers for a working solution.

Answer

Finally figured it out. Here's a working example with mandatory and optional fields pointed out.

build.gradle

apply plugin: 'java'

repositories {
    mavenCentral()
}

dependencies {
    compile 'com.google.oauth-client:google-oauth-client-java6:1.20.0'
    compile 'com.google.apis:google-api-services-cloudtrace:v1-rev6-1.22.0'
}

jar {
    from configurations.compile.collect { it.isDirectory() ? it : zipTree(it) }
}

Test.java

package test;

import com.google.api.client.googleapis.auth.oauth2.GoogleCredential;
import com.google.api.client.googleapis.javanet.GoogleNetHttpTransport;
import com.google.api.client.http.HttpTransport;
import com.google.api.client.json.JsonFactory;
import com.google.api.client.json.jackson2.JacksonFactory;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.CloudTrace;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.CloudTraceScopes;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.model.Trace;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.model.TraceSpan;
import com.google.api.services.cloudtrace.v1.model.Traces;

import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.math.BigInteger;
import java.security.GeneralSecurityException;
import java.util.Collections;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

public class Test {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException, GeneralSecurityException {
        HttpTransport httpTransport = GoogleNetHttpTransport.newTrustedTransport();
        JsonFactory jsonFactory = JacksonFactory.getDefaultInstance();

        GoogleCredential cred = GoogleCredential
                .fromStream(
                        new FileInputStream("/path/to/secrets.json"),
                        httpTransport,
                        jsonFactory)
                .createScoped(Collections.singletonList(CloudTraceScopes.TRACE_APPEND));

        CloudTrace gceTrace = new CloudTrace.Builder(httpTransport, jsonFactory, cred)
                .setApplicationName("Google Cloud Trace test app")
                .build();

        // They are optional
        Map<String, String> labels = new HashMap<>();
        labels.put("key1", "val1");

        TraceSpan span = new TraceSpan();
        span.setSpanId(new BigInteger("1")); // Mandatory
        span.setName("test"); // Optional
        span.setKind("RPC_SERVER"); // Optional
        span.setStartTime("2016-08-04T01:00:00Z"); // Optional
        span.setEndTime("2016-08-04T01:00:01Z"); // Optional
        span.setLabels(labels); // Optional
        Trace trace = new Trace();
        trace.setProjectId("myprojectid"); // Mandatory
        trace.setTraceId("A096D4956A424EEB98AE7863505B1E1F"); // Mandatory
        trace.setSpans(Collections.singletonList(span)); // Mandatory
        Traces traces = new Traces();
        traces.setTraces(Collections.singletonList(trace)); // Mandatory
        gceTrace.projects().patchTraces("myprojectid", traces).execute();
    }

}

While some values are optional, like startTime or endTime, it makes sense to put something there.

I managed to put it together thanks to this question showing the expected values and looking at the REST API doc describing each field, especially for cryptic values like Trace ID:
