Mobile URIs for testing access from REST clients

This question is answered

Hi,

OE11.3.0

I'm trying to test a mobile service using the restclient-tool. A normal restservice is working ok, but mobile service not.

Do I need servicepack 2? Anyway, http://localhost:8980/CustomerMobile/ in chrome gives a good response, http://localhost:8980/CustomerMobile/rest/CustomerMobile?_wadl gives (and here method name="PUT" for each resource path seems not ok to me)

<application xmlns="http://wadl.dev.java.net/2009/02" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<grammars/>
<resources base="http://localhost:8980/CustomerMobile/rest/CustomerMobile">
<resource path="/dsCustomer/UpdatedsCustomer">
<method name="PUT">
<response status="204"/>
</method>
</resource>
<resource path="/dsCustomer/CreatedsCustomer">
<method name="PUT">
<response status="204"/>
</method>
</resource>
<resource path="/dsCustomer/DeletedsCustomer">
<method name="PUT">
<response status="204"/>
</method>
</resource>
<resource path="/dsCustomer/ReaddsCustomer">
<method name="PUT">
<response status="204"/>
</method>
</resource>
</resources>
</application>

Anyway, when I GET http://localhost:8980/CustomerMobile/rest/CustomerMobile/dsCustomer/ReaddsCustomer?filter=

response is

HTTP/1.1 405 Method Not Allowed

Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1

Content-Length: 0

Date: Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:17:48 GMT

Allow: PUT,OPTIONS

And when I PUT the same uri I get

HTTP/1.1 415 Unsupported Media Type

Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1

Content-Length: 0

Date: Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:18:46 GMT

The wadl generated seems not ok. How do I get it right? I have not seen a way to configure the methods like for a plain restservice (edit mobile service dialog).

  • Hi,

    Sorry some how the reply mail didn't reach completely. Following is the complete reply on the same.

    By looking at the generated catalog and the wadl files, seems the Business Entity file has all methods with invoke as the operation as below:

    @openapi.openedge.export(type="REST", useReturnValue="false", writeDataSetBeforeImage="false").
        @progress.service.resourceMapping(type="REST", operation="invoke", URI="/ReadCustomer", alias="", mediaType="application/json"). 
        METHOD PUBLIC VOID ReadCustomer(

                Notes:

                Notes:

                Notes:

        END METHOD.

    Can you please confirm if this is same with your Business Entity.

    By any chance you have added new annotations for the Business Entity class file using Define Service Interface wizard? The potential reason for this behavior would be when you try adding new annotations (say for any new method that got added in the Business Entity) using Define Service Interface wizard. i.e., by default Invoke annotations are selected and when we invoke Finish button without selecting respective operations in the CRUD annotations tab Define Service Interface wizard might replace all annotations with invoke operation.

  • Thanks Anil! I have to look at it on monday, have the files at my work only. I'll reply the.

    Kind regards, Stefan.

  • Thanks again Anil, it works now. I first had to define a mobile service via rightclick on the projectname, select progress openedge / define service interface and after that file / new / mobile service. The uri appeared in the new wadl:

    http://localhost:8980/CustomerMobile/rest/CustomerMobile/dsCustomer?filter=
