PTC Integrity 11.0 + Direct MKS Java API server access

Hello,

 

is it possible to access a PTC Integrity Server / Cloud directly through the JAVA API i.e. via https:// protocol without use of any other local PTC Client installation files? So far, i could not see any information about this in the documentation which is not using command line interface in the end.

 

Thank you for your support!

 

API Version of PTC 11.0 - 4.16.506

JRE 8 u172 is used for my own application

Re: PTC Integrity 11.0 + Direct MKS Java API server access

Well, i think i have to rephrase the question:

 

What could be the cause for failing to connect to our PTC Integrity Server with our direct access through the API?

 

This behaviour also leads to two other questions:

Does PTC Server require any specific configuration?

Is a specific Port for the SSL Connection required? If so, which port is it?

 

The code we used for testing:

 

public static void main(String[] args) {
        IntegrationPointFactory.enableAPILogging(new File(LOG_FILE));
        IntegrationPointFactory ipf = IntegrationPointFactory.getInstance();
        
        IntegrationPoint ip = null;
        Session session = null;
        CmdRunner cmdRunner = null;
        try {
            String sessionId = "session0815";    
            
            /*
             * secure integration point to server
             */
            ip = ipf.createIntegrationPoint(
                    HOST, PORT, true, APIVersion.API_4_16);
            
            session = ip.createNamedSession(
                    sessionId, APIVersion.API_4_16, USER, PASSWORD);
            
            cmdRunner = session.createCmdRunner();
            cmdRunner.setDefaultHostname(HOST);
            cmdRunner.setDefaultPort(PORT);
            cmdRunner.setDefaultUsername(USER);
            cmdRunner.setDefaultPassword(PASSWORD);
            
            Command cmd = new Command("im", "issues");            
            cmd.addOption(new Option("query", QUERY));       
            cmd.addOption(new Option("fields", "id,state,type,project,summary,assigned user"));
            
            Response response = cmdRunner.execute(cmd);
            Result result = response.getResult();
            WorkItemIterator wii = response.getWorkItems();
            
            WorkItem workItem;
            int id;
            Item stateItem;
            Item typeItem;
            Item projectItem;
            
            while(wii.hasNext()) {
                workItem = wii.next();
                id = workItem.getField("id").getInteger();
                stateItem = workItem.getField("state").getItem();
                typeItem = workItem.getField("type").getItem();
                projectItem = workItem.getField("project").getItem();
                
                Project p = new Project (id, stateItem.getId(),
                        typeItem.getId(), projectItem.getId());
                
                System.out.println(p.toString());
            }
            
            cmdRunner.release();
            session.release();
            ip.release();
            
        } catch (APIException apie) {
            apie.printStackTrace();
        } catch (IOException ioe) {
            ioe.printStackTrace();
        } finally {
            try {
                cmdRunner.release();
                session.release();
                ip.release();
            } catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        }

Re: PTC Integrity 11.0 + Direct MKS Java API server access

You can add a boolean to the createIntegrationPoint method to create a secure connection to the Integrity Server. From the API Java Docs for IntegrationPointFactory:

 

public IntegrationPoint createIntegrationPoint(java.lang.String host,
                                               int port,
                                               boolean secure,
                                               int apiMajorVersion,
                                               int apiMinorVersion)
                                        throws APIException
Creates a new IntegrationPoint optionally using a secure communications protocol. Only Integrity Server IntegrationPoints can use secure communication. 
 
Connecting directly to the Integrity Server with the API does not require any PTC IntegrityClient files.

Re: PTC Integrity 11.0 + Direct MKS Java API server access

Hello @fjacksch,

 

In both host1_mksapi.txt and host2_mksapi.txt, you see this:

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

That suggests that the server you're trying to connect to is secure HTTP (https://) rather than clear HTTP.  Based on that, I'd suggest looking at CS138333 - How to use Java API with an SSL enabled Integrity Server.

 

These other articles might also be relevant:

  • CS141335 - Certificate Error When Connecting Via SSL to a Secure Integrity Server
  • CS187785 - Enabling SSL Logging for the Integrity Client or Server JVM
  • CS223578API SSL Communications Fail After Integrity Server Upgrade
