Batch Request construction

Query Request construction

A BatchQueryPart is a representation of a single retrieve request. You can use the following methods in order to fill out a request:


BatchQueryPart request = BatchQueryPart.method("GET").uri("$metadata").build();

Note: The valid method value is GET.

ChangeSet construction A BatchChangeSetPart is a representation of a single change request. You can use the following methods in order to fill out a change request:

Map changeSetHeaders = new HashMap();
changeSetHeaders.put("content-type", "application/json;odata=verbose");
BatchChangeSetPart changeRequest = BatchChangeSetPart.method("PUT")
.uri("Employees('2')/EmployeeName")
.headers(changeSetHeaders)
.body("{\"EmployeeName\":\"Frederic Fall MODIFIED\"}")
.build();
...

Note: The valid method values are POST, PUT, DELETE or MERGE.

The change request has to become a part of a changeSet. For that you need to create a changeSet object and to attach the change request to this object.

...
BatchChangeSet changeSet = BatchChangeSet.newBuilder().build();
changeSet.add(changeRequest);

Batch request payload construction After you collected all created parts, you can call the method writeBatchRequestBody(..) provided by EntityProvider

...
List<BatchPart> batchParts = new ArrayList<BatchPart>();
batchParts.add(request);
batchParts.add(changeSet);

InputStream payload = EntityProvider.writeBatchRequest(batchParts, BOUNDARY);

The second parameter BOUNDARY is necessary information for the construction of the batch request payload. It is the value of the boundary parameter, that is set in Content-Type header of the batch request.

Batch Response interpretation Interpretation of the batch response payload You receive a list of single response by calling EntityProvider.parseBatchResponse(..)

List<BatchSingleResponse> responses = EntityProvider.parseBatchResponse(responseBody, contentType);
for (BatchSingleResponse response : responses) {
      response.getStatusCode());
      response.getStatusInfo());
      response.getHeader(HttpHeaders.CONTENT_TYPE);
      response.getBody();
      response.getContentId();
}
