  1. We can also write Bean Shell code. Here's a quick sample code to make HTTP get call.

    Code Block
    titleBean Shell code to make restful API calls sample
    import org.apache.http.HttpResponse;
    import org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpGet;
    import org.apache.http.client.methods.HttpRequestBase;
    import org.apache.http.impl.client.CloseableHttpClient;
    import org.apache.http.impl.client.HttpClients;
    import org.joget.commons.util.LogUtil;
    	CloseableHttpClient client = null; 
    	HttpRequestBase request = null; 
    	String jsonUrl = "http://localhost:8080/jw/web/json/workflow/assignment/list/count?packageId=crm"; //sample url
    	String name = "header1";
    	String value = "value1";
    	CloseableHttpClient client = null;
    	CloseableHttpClient client = HttpClients.createDefault();
    	HttpRequestBase request = null;
    	request = new HttpGet(jsonUrl);
    	request.setHeader(name, value);
    	HttpResponse response = client.execute(request);
    } catch (Exception ex) {
        LogUtil.error(getClass().getName(), ex, "");
    } finally {
        try {
            if (request != null) {
            if (client != null) {
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            LogUtil.error(getClass().getName(), ex, "");

    We can execute this piece of code from various plugin types giving us the flexibility on where/when we want to invoke it. The only disadvantage compared to the former is that we need to maintain the custom coding ourselves instead of configuring through a plugin. These are the plugin types relevant to our solution to call the code from:-

    1. Bean Shell for Process Tool
    2. Bean Shell Validator
    3. Bean Shell Form Binder
