Sharing an object to an app and modifying its permission using JAVA SDK

Explorer

I can do this activity using the curl command.
curl -k -u admin:pass https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/alice/myapp/saved/searches/mysearch/acl \
-d owner=alice \
-d perms.read=* \
-d sharing=app

But how do I do it using the Java SDK ?

SavedSearch class in the Java SDK does not allow a update on eai:acl. It also doesn't have a setMetadata.
I can do a getMetadata and looked at the classes. permissions is a Record class object, but there's no way I can update that.

Have it working on Java now. Below is the algorithm and the Java sample code.

  1. Load the savedSearch
  2. Get the path of the savedSearch
  3. The permission of the savedSearch is called "eai:acl". So to the path of the savedSearch, append "/acl". We'll refer to it as aclPath.
  4. Create an Args class object.Set your arguments into the Arguments class for keys - owner, sharing, perms.read, perms.write
  5. Post using the class ResponseMessage ( String aclPath, Args args)

Java Sample code:

SavedSearch savedSearch = service.getSavedSearches().get("my only saved search"); 
String aclPath = savedSearch.getPath().toString().concat("/acl");
Args args = new Args();
args2.add("owner", "their_user");
args2.add("sharing","app");
args2.add("perms.read", "where_user,queue_user");
args2.add("perms.write", "who_user, which_user");
ResponseMessage rms=service.post(savedSearch.getPath()+"/acl", args2);
