1. Infinispan REST Endpoint

Infinispan servers provide RESTful HTTP access to data through a REST endpoint built on Netty.

1.1. REST Authentication

Configure authentication to the REST endpoint with the Infinispan command line interface (CLI) and the user command. The CLI lets you create and manage users, passwords, and authorization roles for accessing the REST endpoint.

When running the Docker image, configure authentication with the APP_USER and APP_PASS command line arguments.

1.2. Supported Protocols

The Infinispan REST endpoint supports HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2 protocols.

You can do either of the following to use HTTP/2:

TLS/ALPN with JDK8 requires additional client configuration. Refer to the appropriate documentation for your REST client. In most cases you need to use either the Jetty ALPN Agent or OpenSSL bindings.

1.3. Data Formats and the REST API

Infinispan caches store data in formats that you can define with a MediaType.

See the Cache Encoding and Marshalling for more information about MediaTypes and encoding data with Infinispan.

The following example configures the storage format for entries:

<distributed-cache>
   <encoding>
      <key media-type="application/x-java-object"/>
      <value media-type="application/xml; charset=UTF-8"/>
   </encoding>
</distributed-cache>

If you do not configure a MediaType, Infinispan defaults to application/octet-stream for both keys and values. However, if the cache is indexed, Infinispan defaults to application/x-protostream.

1.3.1. Supported Formats

You can write and read data in different formats and Infinispan can convert between those formats when required.

The following "standard" formats are interchangeable:

  • application/x-java-object

  • application/octet-stream

  • application/x-www-form-urlencoded

  • text/plain

You can also convert the preceding data formats into the following formats:

  • application/xml

  • application/json

  • application/x-jboss-marshalling

  • application/x-protostream

  • application/x-java-serialized

Infinispan also lets you convert between application/x-protostream and application/json.

All calls to the REST API can provide headers describing the content written or the required format of the content when reading. Infinispan supports the standard HTTP/1.1 headers "Content-Type" and "Accept" that are applied for values, plus the "Key-Content-Type" with similar effect for keys.

1.3.2. Accept Headers

The Infinispan REST endpoint is compliant with the RFC-2616 Accept header and negotiates the correct MediaType based on the conversions supported.

For example, send the following header when reading data:

Accept: text/plain;q=0.7, application/json;q=0.8, */*;q=0.6

The preceding header causes Infinispan to first return content in JSON format (higher priority 0.8). If it is not possible to convert the storage format to JSON, Infinispan attempts the next format of text/plain (second highest priority 0.7). Finally, Infinispan falls back to */*, which picks a suitable format based on the cache configuration.

1.3.3. Names with Special Characters

The creation of any REST resource requires a name that is part of the URL, and in case this name contains any special characters as defined in Section 2.2 of the RFC 3986 spec, it is necessary to encode it with the Percent encoding mechanism.

1.3.4. Key-Content-Type Headers

Most REST API calls have the Key included in the URL. Infinispan assumes the Key is a java.lang.String when handling those calls, but you can use a specific header Key-Content-Type for keys in different formats.

Key-Content-Type Header Examples
  • Specifying a byte[] Key as a Base64 string:

API call:

`PUT /my-cache/AQIDBDM=`

Headers:

Key-Content-Type: application/octet-stream

  • Specifying a byte[] Key as a hexadecimal string:

API call:

GET /my-cache/0x01CA03042F

Headers:

Key-Content-Type: application/octet-stream; encoding=hex
  • Specifying a double Key:

API call:

POST /my-cache/3.141456

Headers:

Key-Content-Type: application/x-java-object;type=java.lang.Double

The type parameter for application/x-java-object is restricted to:

  • Primitive wrapper types

  • java.lang.String

  • Bytes, making application/x-java-object;type=Bytes equivalent to application/octet-stream;encoding=hex.

1.3.5. JSON/Protostream Conversion

When caches are indexed, or specifically configured to store _application/x-protostream`, you can send and receive JSON documents that are automatically converted to and from Protobuf.

You must register a Protobuf schema for the conversion to work.

To register protobuf schemas via REST, invoke a POST or PUT in the ___protobuf_metadata cache as in the following example:

curl -u user:password -X POST --data-binary @./schema.proto http://127.0.0.1:11222/rest/v2/caches/___protobuf_metadata/schema.proto

When writing JSON documents, a special field _type must be present in the document to identity the Protobuf Message that corresponds to the document.

Person.proto

message Person  {
  required string name = 1;
  required int32 age = 2;
}

Person.json

{
   "_type": "Person",
   "name": "user1",
   "age": 32
}

1.4. Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) Requests

The Infinispan REST connector supports CORS, including preflight and rules based on the request origin.

The following shows an example REST connector configuration with CORS rules:

<rest-connector name="rest1" socket-binding="rest" cache-container="default">
   <cors-rules>
      <cors-rule name="restrict host1"
                 allow-credentials="false">
         <allowed-origins>http://host1,https://host1</allowed-origins>
         <allowed-methods>GET</allowed-methods>
      </cors-rule>
      <cors-rule name="allow ALL"
                 allow-credentials="true"
                 max-age-seconds="2000">
         <allowed-origins>*</allowed-origins>
         <allowed-methods>GET,OPTIONS,POST,PUT,DELETE</allowed-methods>
         <allowed-headers>Key-Content-Type</allowed-headers>
      </cors-rule>
   </cors-rules>
</rest-connector>

Infinispan evaluates CORS rules sequentially based on the "Origin" header set by the browser.

In the preceding example, if the origin is either "http://host1" or "https://host1", then the rule "restrict host1" applies. If the origin is different, then the next rule is tested.

Because the "allow ALL" rule permits all origins, any script that has an origin other than "http://host1" or "https://host1" can perform the allowed methods and use the supplied headers.

For information about configuring CORS rules, see the Infinispan Server Configuration Schema.

1.4.1. Allowing all CORS permissions for some origins

The VM property infinispan.server.rest.cors-allow can be used when starting the server to allow all permissions to one or more origins. Example:

./bin/server.sh -Dinfinispan.server.rest.cors-allow=http://192.168.1.78:11222,http://host.mydomain.com

All origins specified using this method will take precedence over the configured rules.

2. Interacting with the Infinispan REST API

The Infinispan REST API lets you monitor, maintain, and manage Infinispan deployments and provides access to your data.

By default Infinispan REST API operations return 200 (OK) when successful. However, when some operations are processed successfully, they return an HTTP status code such as 204 or 202 instead of 200.

2.1. Creating and Managing Caches

Create and manage Infinispan caches and perform operations on data.

2.1.1. Creating Caches

Create named caches across Infinispan clusters with POST requests that include XML or JSON configuration in the payload.

POST /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}
Table 1. Headers
Header Required or Optional Parameter

Content-Type

REQUIRED

Sets the MediaType for the Infinispan configuration payload; either application/xml or application/json.

Flags

OPTIONAL

Cache configuration

You can create declarative cache configuration in XML, JSON, and YAML format.

All declarative caches must conform to the Infinispan schema. Configuration in JSON format must follow the structure of an XML configuration, elements correspond to objects and attributes correspond to fields.

2.1.2. Modifying Caches

Make changes to attributes in cache configurations across Infinispan clusters with PUT requests that include XML or JSON configuration in the payload.

You can modify a cache only if the changes are compatible with the existing configuration.

For example you cannot use a replicated cache configuration to modify a distributed cache. Likewise if you create a cache configuration with a specific attribute, you cannot modify the configuration to use a different attribute instead. For example, attempting to modify cache configuration by specifying a value for the max-count attribute results in invalid configuration if the max-size is already set.

PUT /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}
Table 2. Headers
Header Required or Optional Parameter

Content-Type

REQUIRED

Sets the MediaType for the Infinispan configuration payload; either application/xml or application/json.

Flags

OPTIONAL

Used to set AdminFlags

2.1.3. Verifying Caches

Check if caches are available in Infinispan clusters with HEAD requests.

HEAD /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}

2.1.4. Creating Caches with Templates

Create caches from Infinispan templates with POST requests and the ?template= parameter.

POST /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}?template={templateName}

2.1.5. Retrieving Cache Configuration

Retrieve Infinispan cache configurations with GET requests.

GET /rest/v2/caches/{name}?action=config
Table 3. Headers
Header Required or Optional Parameter

Accept

OPTIONAL

Sets the required format to return content. Supported formats are application/xml and application/json. The default is application/json. See Accept for more information.

2.1.6. Converting Cache Configurations between XML, JSON and YAML

Invoke a POST request with valid configuration and the ?action=convert parameter. Infinispan responds with the equivalent representation of the configuration in the type specified by the Accept header.

POST /rest/v2/caches?action=convert

2.1.7. Retrieving All Cache Details

Invoke a GET request to retrieve all details for Infinispan caches.

GET /rest/v2/caches/{name}

Infinispan provides a JSON response such as the following:

{
  "stats": {
    "time_since_start": -1,
    "time_since_reset": -1,
    "hits": -1,
    "current_number_of_entries": -1,
    "current_number_of_entries_in_memory": -1,
    "total_number_of_entries": -1,
    "stores": -1,
    "off_heap_memory_used": -1,

  "indexed": false,
  "persistent": false,
  "transactional": false,
  "secured": false,
  "has_remote_backup": false,
  "indexing_in_progress": false,
  "statistics": false
}
  • stats current stats of the cache.

  • size the estimated size for the cache.

  • configuration the cache configuration.

  • rehash_in_progress true when a rehashing is in progress.

  • indexing_in_progress true when indexing is in progress.

  • rebalancing_enabled is true if rebalancing is enabled. Fetching this property might fail on the server. In that case the property won’t be present in the payload.

  • bounded when expiration is enabled.

  • indexed true if the cache is indexed.

  • persistent true if the cache is persisted.

  • transactional true if the cache is transactional.

  • secured true if the cache is secured.

  • has_remote_backup true if the cache has remote backups.

  • key_storage the media type of the cache keys.

  • value_storage the media type of the cache values.

key_storage and value_storage matches encoding configuration of the cache. For server caches with no encoding, Infinispan assumes application/x-protostream when a cache is indexed and application/unknown otherwise.

2.1.8. Retrieving all mutable cache configuration attributes

Invoke a GET request to retrieve all mutable cache configuration attributes for Infinispan caches.

GET /rest/v2/caches/{name}?action=get-mutable-attributes

Infinispan provides a JSON response such as the following:

[
  "jmx-statistics.statistics",
  "locking.acquire-timeout",
  "transaction.single-phase-auto-commit",
  "expiration.max-idle",
  "transaction.stop-timeout",
  "clustering.remote-timeout",
  "expiration.lifespan",
  "expiration.interval",
  "memory.max-count",
  "memory.max-size"
]

Add the full parameter to obtain values and type information:

{
  "jmx-statistics.statistics": {
    "value": true,
    "type": "boolean"
  },
  "locking.acquire-timeout": {
    "value": 15000,
    "type": "long"
  },
  "transaction.single-phase-auto-commit": {
    "value": false,
    "type": "boolean"
  },
  "expiration.max-idle": {
    "value": -1,
    "type": "long"
  },
  "transaction.stop-timeout": {
    "value": 30000,
    "type": "long"
  },
  "clustering.remote-timeout": {
    "value": 17500,
    "type": "long"
  },
  "expiration.lifespan": {
    "value": -1,
    "type": "long"
  },
  "expiration.interval": {
    "value": 60000,
    "type": "long"
  },
  "memory.max-count": {
    "value": -1,
    "type": "long"
  },
  "memory.max-size": {
    "value": null,
    "type": "string"
  }
}

For attributes of type enum, an additional universe property will contain the set of possible values.

2.1.9. Updating cache configuration attributes

Invoke a POST request to change a mutable cache configuration attribute.

POST /rest/v2/caches/{name}?action=set-mutable-attributes&attribute-name={attributeName}&attribute-value={attributeValue}

2.1.10. Adding Entries

Add entries to caches with POST requests.

POST /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}/{cacheKey}

The preceding request places the payload, or request body, in the cacheName cache with the cacheKey key. The request replaces any data that already exists and updates the Time-To-Live and Last-Modified values, if they apply.

If the entry is created successfully, the service returns 204 (No Content).

If a value already exists for the specified key, the POST request returns 409 (Conflict) and does not modify the value. To update values, you should use PUT requests. See Replacing Entries.

Table 4. Headers
Header Required or Optional Parameter

Key-Content-Type

OPTIONAL

Sets the content type for the key in the request. See Key-Content-Type for more information.

Content-Type

OPTIONAL

Sets the MediaType of the value for the key.

timeToLiveSeconds

OPTIONAL

Sets the number of seconds before the entry is automatically deleted. If you do not set this parameter, Infinispan uses the default value from the configuration. If you set a negative value, the entry is never deleted.

maxIdleTimeSeconds

OPTIONAL

Sets the number of seconds that entries can be idle. If a read or write operation does not occur for an entry after the maximum idle time elapses, the entry is automatically deleted. If you do not set this parameter, Infinispan uses the default value from the configuration. If you set a negative value, the entry is never deleted.

flags

OPTIONAL

The flags used to add the entry. See Flag for more information.

The flags header also applies to all other operations involving data manipulation on the cache,

If both timeToLiveSeconds and maxIdleTimeSeconds have a value of 0, Infinispan uses the default lifespan and maxIdle values from the configuration.

If only maxIdleTimeSeconds has a value of 0, Infinispan uses:

  • the default maxIdle value from the configuration.

  • the value for timeToLiveSeconds that you pass as a request parameter or a value of -1 if you do not pass a value.

If only timeToLiveSeconds has a value of 0, Infinispan uses:

  • the default lifespan value from the configuration.

  • the value for maxIdle that you pass as a request parameter or a value of -1 if you do not pass a value.

2.1.11. Replacing Entries

Replace entries in caches with PUT requests.

PUT /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}/{cacheKey}

If a value already exists for the specified key, the PUT request updates the value. If you do not want to modify existing values, use POST requests that return 409 (Conflict) instead of modifying values. See Adding Values.

2.1.12. Retrieving Data By Keys

Retrieve data for specific keys with GET requests.

GET /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}/{cacheKey}

The server returns data from the given cache, cacheName, under the given key, cacheKey, in the response body. Responses contain Content-Type headers that correspond to the MediaType negotiation.

Browsers can also access caches directly, for example as a content delivery network (CDN). Infinispan returns a unique ETag for each entry along with the Last-Modified and Expires header fields.

These fields provide information about the state of the data that is returned in your request. ETags allow browsers and other clients to request only data that has changed, which conserves bandwidth.

Table 5. Headers
Header Required or Optional Parameter

Key-Content-Type

OPTIONAL

Sets the content type for the key in the request. The default is application/x-java-object; type=java.lang.String. See Key-Content-Type for more information.

Accept

OPTIONAL

Sets the required format to return content. See Accept for more information.

Append the extended parameter to the query string to get additional information:

GET /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}/{cacheKey}?extended

The preceding request returns custom headers:

  • Cluster-Primary-Owner returns the node name that is the primary owner of the key.

  • Cluster-Node-Name returns the JGroups node name of the server that handled the request.

  • Cluster-Physical-Address returns the physical JGroups address of the server that handled the request.

2.1.13. Checking if Entries Exist

Verify that specific entries exists with HEAD requests.

HEAD /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}/{cacheKey}

The preceding request returns only the header fields and the same content that you stored with the entry. For example, if you stored a String, the request returns a String. If you stored binary, base64-encoded, blobs or serialized Java objects, Infinispan does not de-serialize the content in the request.

HEAD requests also support the extended parameter.

Table 6. Headers
Header Required or Optional Parameter

Key-Content-Type

OPTIONAL

Sets the content type for the key in the request. The default is application/x-java-object; type=java.lang.String. See Key-Content-Type for more information.

2.1.14. Deleting Entries

Remove entries from caches with DELETE requests.

DELETE /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}/{cacheKey}
Table 7. Headers
Header Required or Optional Parameter

Key-Content-Type

OPTIONAL

Sets the content type for the key in the request. The default is application/x-java-object; type=java.lang.String. See Key-Content-Type for more information.

2.1.15. Deleting Caches

Remove caches from Infinispan clusters with DELETE requests.

DELETE /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}

2.1.16. Retrieving All Keys from Caches

Invoke GET requests to retrieve all the keys in a cache in JSON format.

GET /rest/v2/caches/{cacheName}?action=keys

Specifies the internal batch size when retrieving the keys. The default value is 1000.

content-negotiation

OPTIONAL

If true, will convert keys and values to a readable format. For caches with text encodings (e.g., text/plain, xml, json), the server returns keys and values as plain text. For caches with binary encodings, the server will return the entries as JSON if the conversion is supported, otherwise in a text hexadecimal format, e.g., 0xA123CF98. When content-negotiation is used, the response will contain two headers: key-content-type and value-content-type to described the negotiated format.

Infinispan provides a JSON response such as the following:

[
    {
        "key":1,
        "value":"value1",
        "timeToLiveSeconds":-1,

JSON
{
  "remote-store": {
    "cache": "my-cache",
    "shared": true,
    "raw-values": true,
    "socket-timeout": 60000,
    "protocol-version": "2.9",
    "remote-server": [
      {
        "host": "127.0.0.2",
        "port": 12222
      }
    ],
    "connection-pool": {
      "max-active": 110,
      "exhausted-action": "CREATE_NEW"
    },
    "async-executor": {
      "properties": {
        "name": 4
      }
    },
    "security": {
      "authentication": {
        "server-name": "servername",
        "digest": {
          "username": "username",
          "password": "password",
          "realm": "realm",
          "sasl-mechanism": "DIGEST-MD5"
        }
      },
      "encryption": {
        "protocol": "TLSv1.2",
        "sni-hostname": "snihostname",
        "keystore": {
          "filename": "/path/to/keystore_client.jks",
          "password": "secret",
          "certificate-password": "secret",
          "key-alias": "hotrod",
          "type": "JKS"
        },
        "truststore": {
          "filename": "/path/to/gca.jks",
          "password": "secret",
          "type": "JKS"
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Several elements are optional such as security, async-executor and connection-pool. The configuration must contain minimally the cache name, the raw-values set to false and the host/ip of the single port in the source cluster. For details about the remote-store configuration, consult the XSD Schema.

If the operation successfully completes, the service returns 204 (No Content). If the target cluster is already connected to the source cluster, it returns status 304 (Not Modified).

Obtaining Source Cluster connection details

To obtain the remote-store definition of a cache, use a GET request:

GET /v2/caches/{cacheName}/rolling-upgrade/source-connection

If the cache was previously connected, it returns the configuration of the associated remote-store in JSON format and status 200 (OK), otherwise a 404 (Not Found) status.

This is not a cluster wide operation, and it only returns the remote-store of the cache in the node where the REST invocation is handled.

Checking if a Cache is connected

To check if a cache have been connected to a remote cluster, use a HEAD request:

HEAD /v2/caches/{cacheName}/rolling-upgrade/source-connection

Returns status 200 (OK) if for all nodes of the cluster, cacheName has a single remote store configured, and 404 (NOT_FOUND) otherwise.

Synchronizing Data

Synchronize data from a source cluster to a target cluster with POST requests and the ?action=sync-data parameter:

POST /v2/caches/{cacheName}?action=sync-data

When the operation completes, Infinispan responds with the total number of entries copied to the target cluster.

Disconnecting Source Clusters

After you synchronize data to target clusters, disconnect from the source cluster with DELETE requests:

DELETE /v2/caches/{cacheName}/rolling-upgrade/source-connection

If the operation successfully completes, the service returns 204 (No Content). It no source was connected, it returns code 304 (Not Modified).

Monitor and perform administrative tasks on Infinispan clusters.

2.6.1. Stopping Infinispan Clusters

Shut down entire Infinispan clusters with POST requests.

POST /rest/v2/cluster?action=stop

Infinispan responds with 204 (No Content) and then performs an orderly shutdown of the entire cluster.

2.6.2. Stopping Specific Infinispan Servers in Clusters

Shut down one or more specific servers in Infinispan clusters with GET requests and the ?action=stop&server parameter.

POST /rest/v2/cluster?action=stop&server={server1_host}&server={server2_host}

Infinispan responds with 204 (No Content).

2.6.3. Backing Up Infinispan Clusters

Create backup archives, application/zip, that contain resources (caches, templates, counters, Protobuf schemas, server tasks, and so on) currently stored in the cache container for the cluster.

POST /rest/v2/cluster/backups/{backupName}

Optionally include a JSON payload with your request that contains parameters for the backup operation, as follows:

Table 27. JSON Parameters
Key Required or Optional Value

directory

OPTIONAL

Specifies a location on the server to create and store the backup archive.

If the backup operation successfully completes, the service returns 202 (Accepted). If a backup with the same name already exists, the service returns 409 (Conflict). If the directory parameter is not valid, the service returns 400 (Bad Request).

2.6.4. Listing Backups

Retrieve the names of all backup operations that are in progress, completed, or failed.

GET /rest/v2/cluster/backups

Infinispan responds with an Array of all backup names as in the following example:

["backup1", "backup2"]

2.6.5. Checking Backup Availability

Verify that a backup operation is complete. A 200 response indicates the backup archive is available. A 202 response indicates the backup operation is in progress.

HEAD /rest/v2/cluster/backups/{backupName}

2.6.6. Downloading Backup Archives

Download backup archives from the server. A 200 response indicates the backup archive is available. A 202 response indicates the backup operation is in progress.

GET /rest/v2/cluster/backups/{backupName}

2.6.7. Deleting Backup Archives

Remove backup archives from the server. A 204 response indicates that the backup archive is deleted. A 202 response indicates that the backup operation is in progress but will be deleted when the operation completes.

DELETE /rest/v2/cluster/backups/{backupName}

2.6.8. Restoring Infinispan Cluster Resources

Apply resources in a backup archive to restore Infinispan clusters. The provided {restoreName} is for tracking restore progress, and is independent of the name of backup file being restored.

You can restore resources only if the container name in the backup archive matches the container name for the cluster.

POST /rest/v2/cluster/restores/{restoreName}

A 202 response indicates that the restore request is accepted for processing.

Restoring from Backup Archives on Infinispan Server

Use the application/json content type with your POST request to back up from an archive that is available on the server.

Table 28. JSON Parameters
Key Required or Optional Value

location

REQUIRED

Specifies the path of the backup archive to restore.

resources

OPTIONAL

Specifies the resources to restore, in JSON format. The default is to restore all resources. If you specify one or more resources, then Infinispan restores only those resources. See the Resource Parameters table for more information.

Table 29. Resource Parameters
Key Required or Optional Value

caches

OPTIONAL

Specifies either an array of cache names to back up or * for all caches.

cache-configs

OPTIONAL

Specifies either an array of cache templates to back up or * for all templates.

proto-schemas

OPTIONAL

Defines either an array of Protobuf schema names to back up or * for all schemas.

tasks

OPTIONAL

Specifies either an array of server tasks to back up or * for all tasks.

The following example restores all counters from a backup archive on the server:

{
  "location": "/path/accessible/to/the/server/backup-to-restore.zip",
  "resources": {
    "counters": ["*"]
  }
}
Restoring from Local Backup Archives

Use the multipart/form-data content type with your POST request to upload a local backup archive to the server.

Table 30. Form Data
Parameter Content-Type Required or Optional Value

backup

application/zip

REQUIRED

Specifies the bytes of the backup archive to restore.

Example Request
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=5ec9bc07-f069-4662-a535-46069afeda32
Content-Length: 7798

--5ec9bc07-f069-4662-a535-46069afeda32
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="backup"; filename="testManagerRestoreParameters.zip"
Content-Type: application/zip
Content-Length: 7353

<zip-bytes>
--5ec9bc07-f069-4662-a535-46069afeda32--

2.6.9. Listing Restores

Retrieve the names of all restore requests that are in progress, completed, or failed.

GET /rest/v2/cluster/restores

Infinispan responds with an Array of all restore names as in the following example:

["restore1", "restore2"]

2.6.10. Checking Restore Progress

2.7.3. Creating/modifying a logger

Create a new logger or modify an existing one with PUT requests.

PUT /rest/v2/logging/loggers/{loggerName}?level={level}&appender={appender}&appender={appender}...

Infinispan sets the level of the logger identified by {loggerName} to {level}. Optionally, it is possible to set one or more appenders for the logger. If no appenders are specified, those specified in the root logger will be used.

If the operation successfully completes, the service returns 204 (No Content).

2.7.4. Removing a logger

Remove an existing logger with DELETE requests.

DELETE /rest/v2/logging/loggers/{loggerName}

Infinispan removes the logger identified by {loggerName}, effectively reverting to the use of the root logger configuration.

If operation processed successfully, the service returns a response code 204 (No Content).

3. REST Client Examples

Part of the point of a RESTful service is that you don’t need to have tightly coupled client libraries/bindings. All you need is a HTTP client library. For Java, Apache HTTP Commons Client works just fine (and is used in the integration tests), or you can use java.net API.

3.1. Ruby REST Example

# Shows how to interact with the REST api from ruby.
# No special libraries, just standard net/http
#
# Author: Michael Neale
#
require 'net/http'

uri = URI.parse('http://localhost:11222/rest/v2/caches/default/MyKey')
http = Net::HTTP.new(uri.host, uri.port)

#Create new entry

post = Net::HTTP::Post.new(uri.path, {"Content-Type" => "text/plain"})
post.basic_auth('user','pass')
post.body = "DATA HERE"

resp = http.request(post)

puts "POST response code : " + resp.code

#get it back

get = Net::HTTP::Get.new(uri.path)
get.basic_auth('user','pass')
resp = http.request(get)

puts "GET response code: " + resp.code
puts "GET Body: " + resp.body

#use PUT to overwrite

put = Net::HTTP::Put.new(uri.path, {"Content-Type" => "text/plain"})
put.basic_auth('user','pass')
put.body = "ANOTHER DATA HERE"

resp = http.request(put)

puts "PUT response code : " + resp.code

#and remove...
delete = Net::HTTP::Delete.new(uri.path)
delete.basic_auth('user','pass')

resp = http.request(delete)

puts "DELETE response code : " + resp.code

#Create binary data like this... just the same...

uri = URI.parse('http://localhost:11222/rest/v2/caches/default/MyLogo')
put = Net::HTTP::Put.new(uri.path, {"Content-Type" => "application/octet-stream"})
put.basic_auth('user','pass')
put.body = File.read('./logo.png')

resp = http.request(put)

puts "PUT response code : " + resp.code

#and if you want to do json...
require 'rubygems'
require 'json'

#now for fun, lets do some JSON !
uri = URI.parse('http://localhost:11222/rest/v2/caches/jsonCache/user')
put = Net::HTTP::Put.new(uri.path, {"Content-Type" => "application/json"})
put.basic_auth('user','pass')

data = {:name => "michael", :age => 42 }
put.body = data.to_json

resp = http.request(put)

puts "PUT response code : " + resp.code

get = Net::HTTP::Get.new(uri.path)
get.basic_auth('user','pass')
resp = http.request(get)

puts "GET Body: " + resp.body

3.2. Python 3 REST Example

import urllib.request

# Setup basic auth
base_uri = 'http://localhost:11222/rest/v2/caches/default'
auth_handler = urllib.request.HTTPBasicAuthHandler()
auth_handler.add_password(user='user', passwd='pass', realm='ApplicationRealm', uri=base_uri)
opener = urllib.request.build_opener(auth_handler)
urllib.request.install_opener(opener)

# putting data in
data = "SOME DATA HERE \!"

req = urllib.request.Request(url=base_uri + '/Key', data=data.encode("UTF-8"), method='PUT',
                             headers={"Content-Type": "text/plain"})
with urllib.request.urlopen(req) as f:
    pass

print(f.status)
print(f.reason)

# getting data out
resp = urllib.request.urlopen(base_uri + '/Key')
print(resp.read().decode('utf-8'))
