exportLibraryStructure Web Service Example

The following code uses Apache HttpClient to export libraries.

import org.apache.commons.httpclient.*; // Apache HttpClient

String webServiceToken = "e39a0b5b-45db-42db-84b2-b85028d954d5";

URL service = new URL("http", mWebServiceHelper.getHost(),
  mWebServiceHelper.getPort(), String.format("/servicesExchange?hid=%s&sid=%s&nodeID=%d",
  "exportLibraryStructure", webServiceToken, NODE_ID));
HttpClient client = new HttpClient();
HttpMethod fileGet = new GetMethod(service.toExternalForm());
int status = client.executeMethod(fileGet);
String exportedTestPlanResponse = fileGet.getResponseBodyAsString();
