Looking for script example for parsing response of Java API.

Looking for script example for parsing response of Java API.

I'm hoping that this has been done 1000's of times and someone has an example to share.

I need to parse the response from a JavaAPI call from a trigger script.

Example:



var cmd = new Packages.com.mks.api.Command("im","issues");


cmd.addOption(new Packages.com.mks.api.Option("queryDefinition", queryDefinition));


var response = api.executeCmdAs(currentUser, cmd);

Re: Looking for script example for parsing response of Java API.

Hi Sean,

Here's a snippet that shows the general concept.

The JAVA API is used identically in a trigger script, as it would be used in POJ application.

HTH Matthias

/**

* creates the Command to Run the temporary Query

* @return Packages.com.mks.api.Command queryCommand

*/

function getRunQueryCommand()

{

var queryCommand = new Packages.com.mks.api.Command(Packages.com.mks.api.Command.IM, "issues");

queryCommand.addOption(new Packages.com.mks.api.Option("fields", "Type,ID"));

var queryBuf = new java.util.StringBuffer();

queryBuf.append('(');

queryBuf.append("field[");

queryBuf.append(singletonField);

queryBuf.append("]=");

queryBuf.append(currentValue);

queryBuf.append('"');

queryBuf.append(')');

queryCommand.addOption(new Packages.com.mks.api.Option("queryDefinition", queryBuf.toString()));

return queryCommand;

}

/**

* check whether the temp query finds at least one Item of the same Type as the current Item

* @return true if successful; false in the event of a failure

*/

function check4Singleton()

{

// Create an API Object to run IM Command Line commands

var api = environmentBean.createAPISessionBean();

// Execute the Query command

var runQueryOut = api.executeCmd(getRunQueryCommand());

if( runQueryOut.getExitCode() == 0 ){

logDebug("Successfully run temporary Query");

// analyse result

if (runQueryOut.getWorkItemListSize() == 0 ){

logDebug("nothing found");

return true;

}

else{

var iter = runQueryOut.getWorkItems()

while (iter.hasNext()) {

var workitem = iter.next()

var tempID = workitem.getField("ID").getValueAsString()

// ########################

// add your own code here

}

return true;

}

}

else{

print("Failed to run temporary Query");

logDebug("leave check4Singleton()");

return false;

}

}

Hi Matthias,

Thank you for the quick reply. I'll check this out as soon as I can (like early next week). I've been handed a set of higher-priority tasks to tackle.

Best of thoughts...
